And this is an older classic one from the 70s, though the video is more recent. To show that some of our folk music also has subtle influences from the indigenous/aboriginal music in this part of the world. (Neither of these two performers are indigenous BTW.)

Can you pinpoint for me where the indigenous influences are please? Not sure what to look for.


This Irish folk singer entertains crowds from her balcony during quarantine in Medellin, Colombia every day at 8pm. People shout from their balconies "Que Cante!" which basically means "Sing!"

The department of Nariño in South-Western Colombia is rich in folk music & traditions, the first song I really like, 'Enchanted River'.

Rio del Encanto

DIdn't see this thread, but to me "Guns of Brixton" is reggae !


That said Cumbia has been very popular in Italy in the last few years and there's a local band playing this kind of music even.

"Guns of Brixton" is Cumbia-Ska hence you hear the reggae influence via the Ska element. In an interview they said the "Black All Stars" album from Colombia was an influence in that track. Brixton & the area around Brixton has long had a sizeable Colombian community since the 70's. I live in Brixton, my parents came in 73/74.

Here are more examples of Cumbia-Ska...









Do you have any folk from your neck of the woods you could add?

Where I live the local music is liscio music. Kinda similar to french musette or to polka

The dance is called Filuzzi (in Bolognese accent it almost sounds like "fi - lu - tsi")

Long story short: Yes I like it. However in my country in eastern europe the whole folk thing got a weird turn since the 90s and changed to what is called pop folk - basically turkish-sounding, electro-pop with gipsy singers, many people hate it with passion.

Here is one classic pure folk though, it's an old military song :
