2018 Golden Festival Recordings Added to Free Music Archive

Photo by Margaret Loomis

Friends, we are pleased to announce that the 2018 Golden Festival recordings collected by WFMU have been added to the archive! Nearly 45 recordings were collected at the event, and they are now available for free streaming and download to our users. 

If you've never heard of the Golden Festival, you're not alone - but you're missing out! It's a fabulous, three-day-long affair in Brooklyn's Grand Prospect Hall, a celebration of Balkan traditional music and dance. Featuring musicians from many corners of the world, instruments that have been used since antiquity, and unique vocal techniques, this is truly a special event. Fortunately, every year since the Free Music Archive began in 2009, there have been recordings from the Golden Festival added to the collection. 

After a few years, the Golden Festival was granted its own Curator page, since the contributions associated with it are nearing the 1,000 mark! Listen to this teaser playlist we've curated, or dive into the whole collection and explore for yourself!

Hey Cheyenne, welcome! I'm a WKU alum, had a show on WWHR Aron's ago (before it was FM) and was in a local BG band that got played on it. So, lots of love for KY and the BG scene. So glad you're on board the mighty FMA. specksnyder
