What is an example of folk music? A good question. And yet it is not an easy one to answer given the diversity and complexity of folk music itself and how various genres of music can be defined.
What is meant by folk music? Music which is influenced by the traditional forms of music that were popular in villages, bazaars, saloons, and barns in the Middle East and other parts of the world, usually with folk instruments such as the lute, guitar, mandolin, jingle stick, fiddle, banjo, singe, awaltun (an animal skin tuned drum) or twanging flute. These instruments are used to create traditional folk songs which are sung by ordinary people. Examples of these types of songs include: edding to an old man, asking for a loan, telling a story, and so on. Other examples can also be found in folk music such as: Jazz, Reggae, Cumbia, Samba, rockabilly, folk music and Top 40 music.
So which is an example of folk music? The simple answer would be, which is an example of something which can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere. But this is very broad in definition and, as such, presents a problem for those who would claim that any song which has been written with only a twangy guitar or a crooning mandolin is in fact “folk music”.
Another example of folk music would be classical music. An example of classical music would be Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, which is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring works ever written by any composer. This is a classic example of classical music. However, to use Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony as an example of folk music would be to use something which is very modern and therefore inappropriate for a classical musician, who in many respects is not a traditional classical musician.
Another example of folk music would be, which is an example of folk music used in popular television shows such as Strictly Come Dancing. These shows do indeed feature traditional items as well as more modern ones, and it is fair to say that some of the audience’s reaction to some of these items is quite humorous. A better example of folk music would be Handel’s “Water Music”.
Which is an example of folk music? It would have to be a more specific example of folk music. For example, an instance of popular music would be, which is an example of popular music which features heavily on the radio these days, such as Radiohead’s” Creep” or Radiohead’s “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles”. That is popular music to many people, but which is an example of popular music which is not so popular with the general public. In that respect the examples of popular music which are not so well known would be albums that have had minor hits on the radio, but which have failed to gain any popularity with the public at large.
Which is an example of folk music? It would have to be an example of non-traditional music that is familiar to most people, and that people would tend to associate with their own culture and their heritage. For example “My Country, My Country” by The Beatles. Which is an example of non-traditional music, which is familiar to most people, and that people would tend to associate with their own culture and their heritage. For example “My Country, My Country” by The Beatles.
So which is an example of folk music? Which is an example of popular music which has not become popular through the efforts of popular record companies? Which is an example of traditional music, which is known all around the world and which is able to appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds? The answer is that it’s all of these things.
