Anna Lomax Wood


  Haiti’s lost music

In 1936, American ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax preserved Haiti’s cultural identity in more than 1,500 audio and film recordings. Need to Know traveled with his daughter, Anna Lomax Wood, to watch and listen as she carried on the legacy of her father’s work by bringing the lost melodies back to a quake-zone community.
