Like World music?
You need to check out our new database:
“An invaluable resource for World music enthusiasts”
Naxos Music Library World has over 5,370 albums with more materials being added weekly. Although NML-W is centered around the complete Smithsonian Folkways catalog, lots of additional recordings from labels like Sony, Warner, Arc, Celestial Harmonies, and Naxos World are available as well.
Found a few tracks you enjoy? Sign up for a free account and create your own personal playlists! You can also browse playlists created by other users or specifically by fellow UArts users; this database is new to us, of course, so will you be the first to make a UArts World music playlist?!?
Sure, you can search by title, artist, or composer, but you can also search by country/geographical area, language, instruments used, and more. Another great option is to browse by list of cultural groups or geographic areas. From on-campus and off-campus, you can access NML-W anytime and anywhere to take advantage of these great features and explore some different musics.
To check out NML-W, visit the UArts Libraries’ homepage then click the link for Audio/Video Online at the bottom of the page in the Online Resources sections. Find Naxos Music Library World in the alphabetical list, click the link, and you made it. Remember, when using the campus network you’ll be taken right in, but for off-campus access current UArts students, faculty, and staff can simply enter their UArts email user name and password.
