How cool is this?

The British Library has put its sound archives online

It’s mostly folk and traditional music, mostly from the UK and Africa; the classical things and some folk are UK-only (thanks in large part to barbaric US copyright law.) But it’s great to hear real folk music sung by real folk. There’s lots of other weirdness (speeches, sound effects etc) too.
