Pete SeegerThe general public knows Pete Seeger primarily for his work as a musician, researcher and political activist. His figure has acquired great notoriety in 2006, that is when Bruce Springsteen released We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, a tribute album to folk singer of New York. Seeger, throughout his long career, not only wrote important pages of traditional music, but has worked with the most important people in this sector, such as Woody Guthrie and Alan Lomax. He recently donated to the American Folklife Center its video documentation, which consists, as you can imagine, hundreds of films on dance and traditional music from various parts of the world: from the last performance of Big Bill Broonzy, to the sitar player Imrat Khan, from the songs of the fishermen of Ghana to the Indonesian dances. Some of these documents can be found here.
