Wordless Folksongs and Their Impact on Society Today

Listen to and analyze the effects of wordless folksongs such as yodelling, cattle calling, and hollering. Explore the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress online archives and note differences in wordless folksongs in the past compared to today and their effect on society.

  • Interesting topic. I was brought up in rural North Carolina, in the "hollerin'" Capital of the World. Each year they have a competition for old-time hollering and calling. There's many videos of the competition online. – NoDakJack 6 years ago
