Smithsonian Global Sound (SGS) is a project of the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. By preserving and disseminating a broad range of the world’s music, SGS assists local traditions by using the power of the Internet for global cultural communication and exchange. SGS joins with institutions around the world to document, record, archive, catalog and digitize music and other verbal arts and distribute them via the World Wide Web. Royalties go to artists and institutions, and honor the intellectual-property rights of composers, musicians, and producers.
