The Society for Ethnomusicology and Smithsonian Folkways are pleased to announce the third feature of "From the Field”: "‘Proud of who I am': Venda Children's Musical Cultures” by Andrea Emberly and Mudzunga Junniah Davhula. Andrea Emberly is an Assistant Professor of Children's Studies at York University and Mudzunga Junniah Davhula is a Creative Arts curriculum advisor for the Vhembe District, Limpopo Province Department of Education, South Africa.

The report appears in the Spring 2014 issue of Smithsonian Folkways Magazine at

Co-produced by Smithsonian Folkways and SEM, "From the Field” 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.

Funding for "From the Field” is provided in part by an Interagency Agreement between the National Endowment for the Arts and Smithsonian Folkways, with SEM participating as a collaborator.
