Children's Music from Smithsonian Folkways Play

Smithsonian Folkways Recordings is the nonprofit record label of the Smithsonian Institution, the national museum of the United States. We are dedicated to supporting cultural diversity and increased understanding among peoples through the documentation, preservation, and dissemination of sound. Children's music has been a Folkways priority from the inception of the label. Founding father Moses Asch sought to build a library of children's records that was intelligent, playful, and inventive, seeking out adult artist-musicians as well as children who could be recorded singing with enthusiasm and verve. To find out more about children's music at Smithsonian Folkways, visit the fall 2009 edition of the Smithsonian Folkways Magazine: http://www.folkways.si.edu/magazine/2009_fall/cover_story-ch­ildren.aspx
