Various folk music of liberia - Folk music - Wikipedia

A consistent definition of traditional folk music is elusive. [2] The terms folk music , folk song , and folk dance are comparatively recent expressions. They are extensions of the term folklore , which was coined in 1846 by the English antiquarian William Thoms to describe "the traditions, customs, and superstitions of the uncultured classes". [3] The term further derives from the German expression Volk , in the sense of "the people as a whole" as applied to popular and national music by Johann Gottfried Herder and the German Romantics over half a century earlier. [4] Traditional folk music also includes most indigenous music . [2]
