[Home]Traditional music

HomePage | Recent Changes | Preferences

Traditional music can be used in different, sometimes conflicting ways, but probably the most common meaning is the ethnic music of a place, played in a social context, and passed on by ear. The term is sometimes, but not always, used interchangeably with folk music, although the latter phrase is sometimes restricted to a kind of modern performance music more closely related to the style and ethos of rock and roll than traditional music. An example is Irish traditional music.
