British Library Sound Archive

Formerly the National Sound Archive, the British Library Sound Archive holds one of the world's largest collections of recordings variously described as traditional, folk or 'world' music. It is a valuable resource for musicians of all backgrounds and an essential reference collection for the study of ethnomusicology and anthropology.
