Folklife by the Numbers

One World, Many Voices: Endangered Languages and Cultural Heritage Twenty-one percent of the 7,105 languages spoken worldwide are in danger of disappearing as younger generations learn the tongues of television and tourism — often Mandarin,... Lane will demonstrate the Siletz Indians’ traditional basket-weaving techniques as one of 310 cultural ambassadors attending the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall (through Sunday, then July 3-7). The Will to Adorn: African-American Diversity, Style, and Identity In 1934, folklorist and novelist Zora Neale Hurston wrote that “the will to adorn” is vital to African-American expression. However, cultural groups worldwide are striving to hold on to their words and the wisdom they contain, says festival director Michael Mason: “There is an enormous amount of knowledge about the natural world that is captured in these languages,... The Smithsonian Folklife Festival runs through Sunday and July 3-7 on the National Mall. ’ Now you can say “Welcome to the Smithsonian Folklife Festival” to Alfred “Bud” Lane, the only fluent speaker of Siletz Dee-ni left on Earth. In many cities, they are establishing traditional dance houses, and the Folklife festival is following suit with a dance barn of its own. About a million visitors are expected at the celebration, which this year will spotlight endangered languages, Hungarian culture and African-American style. Get your groove with the help of Hungarian musicians, including players of:. 19 Orchestral string instruments (violin, viola, bass). 2 Cimbaloms Width of the wooden peacock tail that adorns the 25-foot Peacock Tower, the architectural centerpiece of the festival. 4 Brass instruments (French horn, trumpet). “Urban people are reaching back to traditional communities to find interesting ways of being Hungarian,” Mason says. Hungarian Heritage: Roots to Revival Hungary is in the midst of a folk revival — and young, cosmopolitan citizens are leading the way.

    Excellent student bow for my daughter's Electric Upright Bass

    0 5/5 Christine Childs (Thornton, CO United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: D Z Strad #2622 Double Bass Bow Carbon Fiber Braided French Fluer de lys We have only had this bow for a short time, but my daughter really likes it. We recently purchased her a Stagg electric upright bass which did not come with a bow. We decided in the dry Colorado climate a carbon fiber bow would be a better option than one of the wooden ones. We were pleasantly surprised at the solid construction and look of the bow. While we are not experts by any stretch of the imagination, this seems to be an excellent bow! We are really enjoying listening to her practice and pleased with the sounds produced. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 5, 2014

    Vio Music Bass Bow Case for One French or One German Bass Bow, With Shoulder Strap

    Vio Music

    Does what it says on the tin, and for a low price.

    It's a French/German bass bow case. I, personally, am using a French bow for this case. In the picture at the top of the case, you see a velcro flap. (well bottom with the way the case is oriented in the picture. You simply open that flap up and slide the bow in. It's velvet on the inside so it feels really smooth.Since this case is made for both bass bow types, there's a little extra room on the sides of my bow due to the case needing that extra space to fit the German bow since it's wider. However, this doesn't detract from the case at all. My French bow still fits nice and snug and barely wiggles if at all. Unless you're like jerking your case around wildly, your bow shouldn't move.There's also a strap that you can adjust if you want to carry it over your shoulder or something.For $39.99, this case is worth buying if you're not a professional bass player and just looking for a case that works.

    Good Case

    0 4/5 HeatherMS - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vio Music Bass Bow Case for One French or One German Bass Bow, With Shoulder Strap (Electronics) I purchased this case for my son so that he could take it to school everyday. He has broken his bow in and using the one provided at school was unpleasant for him. Now that he can bring his bow in this case, he is a lot happier. It has a strap which he clips onto this backpack. It is a hard case, so I know that the bow is protected inside. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 20, 2013
