Take a walk through the wilderness of the Smithsonian Folkways catalog!
This summer, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival teams up with Smithsonian Earth Optimism to explore environmental sustainability and climate solutions. In preparation, we invite you to dive into songs that take the natural world as both inspiration and accompaniment. Through these tunes, artists from around the world revere, imitate, and defend forests, rivers, birds, insects, and other fauna and flora. Listen up and consider the sounds of your ecosystems, and then visit us on the National Mall June 22-26 and June 30-July 4.
