Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology

The Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology in the department of Music is an archive and research resource documenting musical and cultural traditions locally and internationally. The collection includes diverse instruments and more than 4000 titles in audio/video recordings. The Centre helps users understand how people use music to connect, express, and create community and identity. It is of value to students and faculty in the social sciences, humanities, education, and fine arts.
