Folk music is a genre of music that is typically passed down through generations and is often associated with traditional and rural communities. Folk music is characterized by its simple melodies, often accompanied by guitar, banjo, fiddle, and other acoustic instruments. It often tells stories of everyday life, love, work, and social and political issues.

Folk music can be divided into several sub-genres, such as traditional folk, contemporary folk, and world folk music. Traditional folk music is based on the songs and melodies that were passed down through generations in a particular culture or community. It often features elements of storytelling and is characterized by its simplicity and directness.

Contemporary folk music, which emerged in the 20th century, is characterized by its use of modern instruments and styles, while still staying true to the traditional elements of folk music. It often features politically and socially conscious lyrics, and is known for its emphasis on songwriting.

World folk music refers to the traditional music of a particular culture or region outside of the Western world. It encompasses a wide range of music styles, including traditional music from Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Folk music has been a significant influence on many other genres of music, including rock, country, and pop music. Folk music continues to be popular today, with many contemporary folk artists drawing on traditional elements while incorporating modern sounds and styles. Folk music is known for its ability to reflect the cultural and social issues of a particular community or region.
