You can sample the world's cultures through the many resources listed on the guide. You can listen to music, watch dance, read scholarly articles, and learn about various peoples and their cultures.

While many of these resources allow you to search by the name of a country (e.g., Ethiopia), you may want to search by the name of a given people as well. Don't know the name of a given ethnic group? That's okay -- read some of the articles in the Garland Encyclopedia of World Music or look through the listings in the eHRAF World Cultures database to get some ideas.

Questions? You can email me your questions or set up a consultation appointment with me -- look for my profile information in the lower left hand of this guide.
