Choose a Region

What is this site about?

In your country, city or your village, there are some musicians who play folk music of their area. Maybe they are famous or maybe they are not! Let's introduce them to the world. We are not looking for folk-pop, folk-jazz or folk-rock. We are looking for pure folk and classical traditional of each region. You can send their songs here and give us information about their music and their works. It can be an old farmer or a dedicated musician. Currently its hard to find information about folk / traditional music of all countries in one place. We want to achieve this goal with your help.

This project is focused on original folk and traditional music of the different countries, nations and ethnic groups of the world. Definition of “folk” and “traditional” music in different cultures changes, and generally it's hard to give a universal definition.

Although folk music usually refers to orally transmitted music or music with unknown composers, but it can include the traditional classical music of countries as well which theoretically differs from folk music, like Indian traditional classical music vs. Indian folk music. But it doesn't include Western (European) Classical music.

These music are accepted here: indigenous music, aboriginal music, ethnic music, regional music, rural music, root music, traditional ritual music, arranged folk music, recreated folk music,...

These music are not accepted in this project: folk-pop, folk-rock, folk-jazz (any kind of folk fusion that employs some folk elements like an instrument, a melody or a rhythm in another genre or style), world music (folk music arranged for Western ears with commercial interests, usually published by Western labels; although some “world music” are original and accepted), fusion of different original folks (like Arabic oud with Indian sitar or Spanish flamenco with West African rhythms), modernized and contemporized versions of folk tunes with new sounds, especially electronic sounds.
