Happy Birthday Alan Lomax
January 31, 2011
We'd like to wish a happy birthday to "the man who recorded the world" -- Alan Lomax.
Lomax's decades of pioneering work in the field of ethnomusicology helped preserve traditional music throughout the world. His daughter Anna Lomax Wood, Executive Director of the Association for Cultural Equity (ACE), is now spearheading the movement to "explore and preserve the world's expressive traditions with humanistic commitment and scientific engagement."
The Green Family Foundation proudly partnered with ACE in 2009 to help release Alan Lomax in Haiti: Recordings for the Library of Congress, 1936-1937 which has been nominated for two Grammys: Best Historical Album and Best Album Notes.
