Cabowitz was one of the best known Czech Republic musicians who mixed and cutup traditional music types to create his own interpretations of said music.
Many of the different types of folk music originally popped up in America.
All the following particular subgenres of folk did originate in America. Whether it was Appalachian folk, Bluegrass, gospel country music, old time music, jug bands, blues or Cajun and Native American folk.
Native American folk music is generally well liked by the Native Americans populations. Native Americans are part of the United States culture, and their music is played during rituals and for many official ceremonies. Music and dance is part of their roots and is really important to them.
Many say folk is also a "cult" genre. But most people who listen to folk also share interests in many other genres of music. I love folk music myself and it's one of my most favourite genres. (I also love rock and roll and jazz).
One of my favourite folksy bands is Bliss. I feel a real connection with both their own music and the way their own renditions of other popular songs made big in other arenas. Their style of lyrics and sounds are so eerie and seem reach deep into the soul.
Anyway that my take what's yours?
