Folk Nations


Folk Nations is an exciting three year programme aiming to bring together musicians, creative producers and practitioners from the UK and the South Asia region. The folk sector in the UK has seen a successful re-emergence and diversification of the genre, with practitioners and artists conserving traditional music forms and styles while developing new dimensions that reflect a more contemporary sensibility and sound. South Asia is renowned for its traditional folk music forms, many of which have regional particularities and identity, such as Manganiyar, Gazals and Baul music.
