"L’Italia è una terra dalle molte voci, alcune aspre e dolenti, altre estremamente arcaiche: nessuna corrisponde alla nostra idea della bella arte della canzone. Eppure in ogni regione sono giunti fino al nostro tempo un sentimento antico, una cultura locale della bellezza." ALAN LOMAX Ho conosciuto #AlanLomax grazie ad una bella conferenza organizzata dalla @Compagnia del Solstizio Mediterraneo e tenuta dal mio amico @maxmorabito_ musicista del #canzonieregrecanicosalentino . Mi ha subito affascinato il personaggio che ha passato anni della sua vita a girare il mondo e registrare i canti e le musiche che sarebbero andate disperse, interrogando contadini, pastori e artigiani... Ci sono storie bellissime dietro questa investigazione. È poi, lui, Alan Lomax, addirittura indagato dal FBI: "L'investigazione condotta tra i vicini dimostra che è un individuo molto strano: si interessa soltanto di musica folk, è davvero poco affidabile e scontroso. [...] Non dà alcun valore ai soldi, usa la sua proprietà e quella del governo con negligenza, praticamente non si cura del suo aspetto." Praticamente ... Uno di noi...
Impressive new album by guitarist YONATAN GAT. It’s title “Universalists” sets the stage, finding the trio’s atmospheric melodic psychedelia mixed with Alan Lomax field recordings from Genoa, Mallorca, Piemonte & Lombardia. An album that’s really living and breathing in it’s own realm #yonatangat #universalists #monotonix #alanlomax #contactrecords #vinyiligclub

Bob Dylan - Self Portrait (Recorded in 69 & 70 / Released in 70) Columbia (US)
The soundtrack to Alan Lomax's acclaimed book which I have been reading for quite a while. The book is filled with stories of work camps, field hollers, hymns and ballads. Blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Memphis Slim, Son House, Sonny Boy Williamson and Mississippi Fred McDowell were interviewed and their music recorded between 1933 and 1956. Without these recordings we may have never discovered the backbone of African American music and all that follows: Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Ray Charles, just to name a few, would probably have never existed or maybe their music would have sounded completely different if the Lomax's archives were never created and made accessible to the people. Now that is some food for thought!! "The Land Where The Blues Began", two must-haves for your Blues collection. . . . #Blues #Bluescollection #Alanlomax #TheLandWhereTheBluesBegan #history #muddywaters #bluesmusic #holler #workcamp #slavery #americanmusic #americanhistory #goodreads #cdcollection #musiccollection #Bluesforever #bluessound #books #bluesbooks #blueshistory #chicagoblues #deltablues

Alan Lomax spent years using the lens of his camera to document the insights of the wild Americana, leaving behind a rich archive of the everyday sounds, stories and faces of the blues.

sorry for the silence - our Instagram got hacked last week and it was a death-fight to get it back. our @gemsonvhs patreon is already at 100+ contributors, and im often at a loss for how to say thank you. we started the YouTube channel as a dream to document culture through songwriting, in the tradition of #alanlomax , and in a true fake-it-till-you-make-it scenario, our journey took off. weve been given the opportunity to sit down with some of the realest musicians of the 21st century, hang out with the Lomax family and talk history, not to mention meeting all you swell folks along the way at what's now 40,000 subscribers & counting. people who really give a damn about connecting with the world around them through music, learning and growing as a people. and i guess im just gonna keep doing it for as long as people will listen. i feel extremely grateful to be given the opportunity to do it. all we do is point the camera and talk with folks, but flight or fight mechanism has definitely set in now that this has become a real movement - and we're gonna fly. 🎥: @lilcaspermane

I'm so happy to finally have this in my collection! Sounds of the South is a collection of Alan Lomax's field recordings in the late 50s early 60s to capture the sounds of the American south. From Delta blues to prison work gang songs, from the Georgian Sea Islands to the Mississippi Delta, the album is full of recordings that may have never been heard if not for him! If you haven't checked it out, it's quite the journey! #soundsofthesouth #alanlomax #thesouth #mississipi #georgia #blues #folk #appalachia #mississipidelta #deltablues #50s #60s #ethnomusicology #country #music #cd #compactdisc #recordplayer #recordshop #recordcollector

#haul #vinyl #booty from @20th_century_funking_junk #topicrecords #pristine #folk #collection #annotated #notes #seanoboyle is mentioned on the sleeve, a #folklorist and schoolteacher from my #hometown of #armagh who also wrote the excellent book, The Irish Song Tradition. This is a ten volume series of sound recordings, collected and edited by Peter Kennedy and Alan Lomax, assisted by Shirley Collins. It was originally published in America on Caedmon Records in 1961 and later in the UK on Topic in 1968 and 1970. The songs were collected from traditional singers all over the British Isles by the editors mainly in England, by Hamish Henderson in Scotland, and by Séamus Ennis and Sean O'Boyle in Ireland. The series helped provide the repertoire and singing styles not only of luminaries like Ewan MacColl and Bert Lloyd, but those hundreds who came to the revival from the late 1950s onwards.

Oh my! Just got this record which is perfect - and the Field Song from Senegal song by Bakari-Badji just kinda shakes me to my core. As does the one called Berta, Berta by “Leroy Miller and a group of prisoners.” Dang, did they get paid for this? Produced by Alan Lomax and with a grant from The Rockefeller Foundation. Alan Lomax was both a hero, and also an asshole, I bet. #vinyl #enterpriserecords #blues #alanlomax @twosandfews - comment? Commentary!?
#musicbookclub 002 - While in full research mode for the feature vinyl doc, I keep being brought back to John and Alan Lomax’s unmatched contributions to the preserving the history and origins of blues and folk music. ———————/////———————— I can only hope that this journey brings me to the Library of Congress to see his work in person at the American Folklife Center. ———————/////———————— “Without Lomax it’s possible that there would have been no blues explosion, no R&B movement, no Beatles and no Stones and no Velvet Underground.” —Brian Eno ———————/////———————— #recordingtheblues #alanlomax #brianeno #therollimgstones #thebeatles #leadbelly #muddywaters #blues #theblues #folklorist #mississippidelta #mississippideltablues #musichistory #historyofmusic #johnlomax #libraryofcongress #libraryofcongressrecordings #musicbooks #landwherethebluesbegan #ethnomusicology
I bought it just to have it. Since I first heard Alan Lomax field recordings, I fell in love in it. All the blues, gospel, a capella and the rest of early American stuff is just amazing. And the church recordings are so lovely energetic, that you can barely sit. I love folk music from all around the world, but it’s not easy to collect the records. If you haven’t heard about Alan Lomax, you have to do it now. American music will not be the same. Never again. This is not the records from very big Alan Lomax library, but it’s also a nice piece of stuff. A little difficult to listen, because it’s old and bad quality. But I just feel good to have it. You know the feeling, don’t you? #vinyladdict #vinyl #vinyllovers #vinylporn #folk #folkmusic #gospel #church #alanlomax

Alan Lomax was an American ethnomusicologist, best known for his numerous field recordings of folk music of the 20th century. He was also a musician himself, as well as a folklorist, archivist, writer, scholar, political activist, oral historian, and film-maker. #alanlomax #alanlomaxarchives #alanlomaxrecordings #blues #bluesmusic #blueshistory #blueshistorian #traditions #legacy #history

Remember this now-classic scene of museum decolonization from #BlackPanther ? How does it change the scenario if, instead of objects, we substitute field recordings made by white men of so-called 'native' music? Is it better, worse, or something else entirely? #decolonizethemuseum #sound #fieldrecording #alanlomax #paulbowles #leosarkisian #africa #caribbean #nigeria #morocco #nagra #tape #microphone #museum #objects #othering #culture #killmonger #cultureofsound
Questa canzone è stata raccolta da Alan Lomax e inclusa nel catalogo Sicily con il nome di ”’U metiri”, nella sua versione aveva some sottofondo il suono del mietere. Il testo è molto diffuso con varianti in tante province. Al termine del brano, sull’invocazione, abbiamo aggiunto il ritmo del tiracristo tipico accompagnamento di percussioni della processione de Venerdì Santo a Palagonia. Ciò che mi affascina di questo disco sono gli accadimenti che hanno caratterizzato certi brani. Abbiamo registrato in uno studio in Piazza a Palagonia, Michele Musarra il fonico e bassista, che lavorava ai brani il venerdì santo, sentendo la banda sfilare in processione per strada, ha invitato il batterista che sfilava durante a salire un attimo in studio e registrare. Se non fosse nato lì questo disco, se non fosse stato costruito da piccole coincidenze, non avrebbe suonato così. #cuttunielame #sicilia #sicily #folk #etno #world #alanlomax

The blues is about a girl you love and you’re tryna get her all to your own. It’s about a man or woman who done you wrong. It’s about a bad, bad man keeping you scared and down. It’s songs born from the hardest work. It’s going out and kissing and dancing with your best gal. I don’t think I’ll ever get over this music. I don’t know if you’re ever supposed to. Hallelujah. #alanlomax #bluesmusic #landwherethebluesbegan

My recent holiday reading was a signed copy of Billy Bragg's book Roots, Radicals & Rockers about the brief skiffle music craze of middle 1950s Britain. The breakthrough record was Lonnie Donnegan's recording of The Rock Island Line, learned from a recording by the blues singer Leadbelly who was discovered in jail by the folklorist Alan Lomax. This record caused the level of guitar imports to Britain to rise from a few thousand in 1955 to half a million in 1956. The teenage purchasers of some of this sudden slew of imported guitars grew up to revolutionise popular music the following decade. #poetryclub #poem #limericks #limericksversushaikus #iglimerick #poet #poems #poetry #writer #writers #words #wordsmith #wordsmiths #wordsmakepoetry #wordsmatter #leadbelly #lonniedonnegan #skiffle #skifflecraze #billybragg #alanlomax #therockislandline #rockislandline #folkblues #folklorist #poetrycommunity #rhymingpoetry #writersofinstagram #writersoftheworld

Fun thrifting find today...1969 printing of the Alan Lomax “American Folk Songs” book with lyrics and music used in a 4th grade “scool” music class. Ah, the good ole days when little children sang along to tales of murder, rye whiskey, gambling, jail, cocaine, and the pleasures of bum life.
New World Records was one of the labels that was well-represented in the vinyl collection of the Charlotte Public Library and formed a significant piece of my early musical education. This amazingly pure and truly transcendent collection was recorded by #alanlomax and documents a departed generation of #georgiaseaislandsingers #lowerprovidence #lowerprovidencegospelrevue

Con grande emozione vi annuncio il concerto che terrò a Palermo domenica 7 ottobre per #pianocitypalermo ! Eseguirò mie composizioni originali ispirate a Canti Antichi Siciliani, un progetto su cui sto lavorando da un pó di tempo a questa parte che unisce un pizzico di "saudade" per le mie origini al chiaro intento di riscoprire le radici della cultura siciliana, i canti di questa terra così intrisi dei più svariati influssi in un universo multietnico che ci rimanda echi di melodie arabe persiane greche sefardite. Sarà ancora più bello suonare per la prima volta questi pezzi nella cornice di Ballarò, davanti al murales di San Benedetto il Moro, opera realizzata dall'artista palermitano Igor Scalisi Palminteri per promuovere l'integrazione multirazziale nel Mediterraneo. Spargete voce!!! #pianocity #pianocitypalermo #sanbenedettoilmoro #ballarò #igorscalisipalminteri #piano #alanlomax #antirazzismo
