Sound Archive of the British Library Free Online

To say they are diverse may be understatement. There are Geordies banging spoons, Tawang lamas blowing conch shell trumpets and Tongan tribesman playing nose flutes. And then there is the Assamese woodworm feasting on a window frame in the dead of night.

The British Library revealed it has made its vast archive of world and traditional music available to everyone, free of charge, on the internet.

Thanks for the heads-up MoeJoe.

It's not just world music; I'm browsing the archives of the St Mary-le-Bow public debates - fascinating stuff I never knew existed!

Update: Drat! can't actually play the debate recording unless you're from an educational institution. I hadn't ticked the 'Only recordings everyone can play' box.

Instead I'm listening to "East Poland soundscapes: A hot afternoon on a boggy heath near Urszulin." Is that a yellow bunting? Yes, I do believe it is.
