This week, Henrietta and Eli speak with enthnomusicologist/anthropologist & musician Peter Gold. Peter was one of Henrietta’s students at City College back in the mid 1960′s and was her field recording assistant on a number of recording expeditions in Mexico and the American South. We’ll hear selections from those field recordings, selections from Peter’s own CDs and hear about Peter’s latest book, “Navajo and Tibetan Sacred Wisdom: The Circle of the Spirit.”
Ancient Ways Project- Peter Gold’s front organization.
Humane Being – Peter’s Blog, a bunch of great writing that he’s done.
