Hear the collection come to life in a concert featuring Pakaraguian Kulintang Ensemble of Southern California and other instruments highlighted in the Adam Matthew Digital Project.

To mark this year's UNESCO-designated World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, UCLA's World Music Center is celebrating the fruition of a multi-year partnership between the Ethnomusicology Archive and British publisher Adam Matthew Digital. This collaboration now makes sixty major field collections held by the Archive publicly accessible online, along with demonstrations of instruments from our World Musical Instrument Collection. Come for an afternoon and evening of lectures, workshops, and performances related to the Adam Matthew project, with featured guest speaker Anthony Seeger, Emeritus Distinguished Professor (UCLA) and Emeritus Director of Smithsonian Folkways Recordings.
