Abstract
Description
Traditional music is often just endangered, if not more so, than the languages in which it is performed. This talk draws on a case study from Burkina Faso illustrating how placing traditional music centrally in language documentation leads to a culturally rich, community-oriented corpus that helps preserve both.
