VOICES FROM THE VERNACULAR MUSIC CENTER

VOICES FROM THE VERNACULAR MUSIC CENTER

VOICES FROM THE VERNACULAR MUSIC CENTER is a podcast from at Texas Tech University. Hosts Roger Landes and Chris Smith, musicians and directors of the VMC, explore vernacular art forms: musics and dance which are learned, taught, and passed on by ear and in the memory. We talk about how the VMC engages with music and dance from around the world, and about the connections, histories, and community meanings of these art forms. We hear from players, scholars, dancers, builders, and listeners; we hear about times and places and people, and together with our audience we seek to discover and celebrate the webs of human meaning which connect all of them. We would like to thank the TTU Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation for funding Series 1 and the J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts for funding Series 2.
