Holiday music traditions such as Christmas, Hannukah, and Kwanzaa feature an incredibly diverse range of musical accompaniment. The Holiday Music Map from Smithsonian Folkways includes 56 songs from 24 nations. Listen to them all in a row, or take a self-guided tour! This project was a collaboration with ESRI.
Through a series of galleries, representing the key sections and themes of the Folkways catalogue, the relationship between the cover art and the recorded sound is explored. Through words and images, the history and importance of Folkways cover art emerges. Over 200 album covers are displayed representing a vast range of artistic styles and genres.
