The Society for Ethnomusicology and Smithsonian Folkways are pleased to announce the launch of "From the Field,” a series of multimedia reports for the online Smithsonian Folkways Magazine at www.folkways.si.edu/magazine/. Co-produced by Smithsonian Folkways and SEM, this series presents recent ethnomusicological field research to a general audience. Reports combine audio and video recordings, photographs, and narrative to explore music-making and social issues at locales around the world.
