North America

Project Type



April 2023

Folk music in North America is a vibrant mosaic of cultural influences, with indigenous music and Appalachian folk music standing out as significant contributors. Indigenous music, spanning diverse communities, preserves ancestral traditions through ceremonial chants and unique instruments. Appalachian folk music, rooted in the Appalachian region of the United States, carries echoes of Celtic, Scots-Irish, and African American musical traditions. With instruments like the banjo, fiddle, and dulcimer, Appalachian folk music tells stories of hardship, resilience, and community. Together, these musical traditions celebrate North America's cultural diversity and historical depth, enriching its cultural tapestry and connecting past, present, and future generations
