Music of the Earth CDsRootstock RecordingsMCM Video/DVDJVC VideoLyrichord Archive CDsMusic & Society DVDs

Multicultural Media specializes in producing and distributing world music and dance CDs, Videos and DVDs. We were the co-producers of all of the JVC Smithsonian Folkways Video Collections consisting of a total of 41 volumes and 20 books.  We publish the Music of the Earth CD series which represents field recordings from around the world. Multicultural Media has recently introduced its new CD label, Rootstock Recordings, featuring new traditional and contemporary world music artists.

We are especially proud of our relationship with Lyrichord Discs which was founded in 1950, and which has a large collection of world music and early music titles. Multicultural Media and Lyrichord Discs are co-producing a number of new titles and series, among them the Lyrichord Archive series which has been repackaging, in custom-made CD format, archival titles from the large catalog of Lyrichord titles never before released on compact disc. We have also partnered with Lyrichord to release on DVD, for the first time ever, the acclaimed film series on world music and dance by Deben Battacharya from Jeffrey Norton Publishers, previously available only in VHS format..

You can access all of our CD, video and DVD titles through the various tabs above: The Music of the Earth CD series of field recordings, our artist-based record label Rootstock Recordings, our MCM (Multicultural Media) videos and DVDs, the JVC Smithsonian Folkways Video Collections, The Lyrichord Discs Archive Series of custom-made CD-Rs complete with original artwork and notes, and the Lyrichord/Multicultural Media Music & Society DVD series of films.
