The Arhoolie Foundation is Still Here! (in El Cerrito, California)

You may have heard that Arhoolie Records has been acquired by the Smithsonian Institution. This is true. The commercial record company Arhoolie Records is now part of the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.. However, the Arhoolie Foundation, has always been a separate non-profit 501c (3) organization and continues to operate in El Cerrito California. Chris Strachwitz, founder of both Arhoolie Records and the Arhoolie Foundation will continue on as the Foundation's president.
