Border Mixology

Everybody polka

Other recent Smithsonian/Folkways releases have included examinations of the contemporary Midwestern polka scene, gospel music in Washington, D.C., and black banjo players from the Carolinas. This effort to document the traditional music that continues to thrive in the United States is a potent reminder that not all musical activity is fodder for the music industry. On these CDs musicians, dancers, and listeners are enjoying the sounds of their own communities, proof that preserving cultural diversity can be fun. Anyone interested in experiencing how some Americans let the good times roll without switching on the tube or schlepping to the mall should give them a try.
