Michigan anthropology professor Kelly Askew’s project with School of Information researchers to create an interactive website of orphaned musical recordings is highlighted in the article about MCubed’s first year.

“It was during one of these that Kelly Askew, associate professor of anthropology, played the Armstrong snippet, in addition to a clip from a Tanzanian jazz band and another from folk singer Jane Voss. Askew is working with researchers in the School of Information to build an interactive website with thousands of hours of orphaned music recordings from both The Ark in Ann Arbor and from Africa.
