Importance of Folk music

After checking some sources of information,  I found in Google that  “Among all the genres of music around the world, Folk music has to be and is the most important one in a society and culture. As the name suggests, Folk is the music of the people. Folk never eliminates people and culture from its lyrics and rhythms. It keeps the people connected to their past and their culture, because when we sing folk songs it connects us with the generations who have come before us as well as other cultures from around the world. We follow in their footsteps and gather together because of our love for singing and dancing. Folk songs are also great because they make it so easy to teach history and culture.”  I

f this is true, we have to analyze how music is passed from generation to generation and the instruments people have used to do it, besides the dancing and typical clothes worn by our ancestors.

Here comes the questions:

In what way our culture is reflected in a folk song?

Is it important to preserve our “pure folk”? What about  musical fusion?
