The recent acquisition of two series of LPs (vinyl records) from the Samuel Baud-Bovy ethnomusicological collection and a transfer from the Musicology Library of the University of Geneva has created a set of about 400 hundred duplicate records in the MEG's sound archives. In addition, about ten years ago, the MEG received a monumental collection of more than 5000 LPs, released on a multitude of labels around the world, the majority of which date from the 1960s-70s. This collection was put together by Marco Botta, an avid music lover. It includes a series of original records in mint condition, which have never been heard before! This exceptional collection presents an exhaustive panorama of the world of popular music, from all five continents. To highlight the acquisition of these discographic treasures, the MEG invites artists to share a few selected pieces with the public for an evening.
