How old is that song? Sounds very classically Ottoman/Arabian.

This old millitary song in the South-Western Andes of Colombia was first put on a misic sheet in 1789 but has been orally sung and played since before then. It celebrates even women taking up arms.

There are only a few countries in which a traditional music style is widely heard in the everyday popular media.
Most countries have a domestic music industry, but most such music is simply American-style pop beat with vocals in the local language. Even Kpop is a variation on the universal standard.

But Mexico is one where Ranchero and Norteno are heard everywhere, and they have not sold out to western pop-rock.

India is anther, where it is hard to escape from the Bollywood genre.

Ethiopia has its own unique style of African music. Much of the rest of Africa clings to the Soukous base.

Those are three countries where "folk-music" can be heard by walking past any street boom-box.

Marimba music from the southern Pacific coast is said the be the most intact melodic African music in the Western hemisphere and is UNESCO world heritage of humanity. Its roots are in the kingdoms of Guinea and Mali pre 15th century.

Classic English-Canadian Maritime folk music. I've played this before with bar bands:

More Canadian Maritime folk music. This one's about coal mining in Nova Scotia. It's a cappella, and yes, I have sung it in a TTBB quartet:

And finally, there is this, about Canada's role in a WWI battle. Again, I've sung this in a TTBB quartet:

Canada is a fairly young country, as folk music and traditions go, so some allowances must be made. Still, it is working on its own folk music. Based mainly on the rhythms of English/Scottish/Irish/American Appalachian folk music, but the subject is always Canadian. The above are just some examples.
