Folk songs generally refer to traditional songs originating among the common people of a particular region or community that have been passed between generations by oral transmission. People created and performed the songs for the purpose of addressing the events that are important to them. Moreover, folk songs are mostly sung with simple or no accompaniment and the instruments used vary with the culture. Since folk songs are handed down orally, they often exist in several versions. Besides, there are also modern popular folk songs written in a similar style of the traditional ones. Connect to the MMIS to find out more.
