Trapped in Folklore?
Questions like "Trapped in folklore?" open up many possibilities for reflection and prompt different answers. This thematic book discusses questions as to whether the selected musical phenomena are a fossilized form of tradition, folklore, and folklorism and, as such, are trapped in a museum-like image isolated from contemporary cultural life. Or, whether we are looking at active events, changes, and adjustments within contemporary society. The book presents the openness and diversity of views on folklore and creates a connection between (past and present) folklore phenomena, between researchers, and between their fields of expertise.
