Reminder of the cultural value of the web

If you’re in Britain, you should definitely listen to this week’s episode of The Choir before the iPlayer version expires in a week. It’s called ‘The American Sardinians’:

In January 2011 four Americans, under the name ‘Tenores de Aterue’, shared their home-grown passion for Sardinian singing with a video performance on YouTube. To their amazement it went viral – in Sardinia! To this day, the singers have never been to Sardinia, and understand very little of the language they are singing. Aled Jones is joined from the US by this quartet of musical explorers and hears their story in music and words.

They discovered the music on YouTube and have shared it on YouTube…a reminder of the little ways in which the web helps spread, diversify and protect our cultural heritage.
