A companion to the major Smithsonian Institution series for public TV & radio, “River of Song” explores the breadth & depth of American music at the close of the 20th century -- through narrative, photos, & the words of the musicians themselves. Over the course of 5 years, they recorded & interviewed more than 500 musicians in the communities where they live & perform. There is folk music here, & basement-band rock; Native Amer. drummers, newly transplanted Laotian melodies, & the music of last century’s French settlers; zydeco & Cajun music, country, gospel, blues, & soul. “Captures, often in the artist’s own words, what the music means to them: its place as a part of tradition, but also as a living, glorious fact in their world.” Color & b&w photos.
