The Global Jukebox is a project initiated by Columbia Univeristy musicologist, Alan Lomax. He created an interactive tool that allows users to see the similarities between folk song traditions around the world. The user can choose to navigate the Global Jukebox either through a spinning wheel, hence the “Jukebox” title, or grouped markers on a world map. A good starting point is the “Journeys” option which gives in-depth information about a certain topic along with musical examples. Due to the large and ambitious scope of this project, the Global Jukebox functions as a great introduction to folk music research.
