International Library of African Music

The International Library of African Music, fondly known as ILAM, was established in 1964 and is a researching, publishing and teaching centre for African traditional music.

It is not strictly a museum but it does house a collection of more than two hundred traditional African musical instruments, many of which are still able to be played.

Founded by Hugh Tracey established ILAM as an independent research centre, library and archive and from its inception his vision was for the project to respect Africa music and uphold the traditional styles by recording, documenting and preserving this history. This is done through research, publication, education and community outreach.
