Listen to this brilliant folk music playlist. It contains the best modern folk songs played around the globe and that are part of each culture and music tradition of each region. Germany's Johann Gottried Herder used the term "Volk" in the 18th century, from which Folk procedes, to refer to the people as a whole, relating them to the music and tradition of each region. So, listen to how the world sounds and to its floklore along with maracas and charango in South America, the banjo in North America, the darabouka in Africa, or the gong in Asia.
