All the types of music listed above tend to be grouped under the heading of 'folk' music and then ignored by the media, academia and exponents of 'serious' music.
This music is the well-spring of all other types of music. Composers, song writers and lyricists are constantly dipping into the music that comes from the people, often simply rehashing what they've found and calling it their own, sometimes using the forms and melodies as an inspiration for their own creativity.
From Bartok to the Beatles, from Country Music to Jazz to Garage, the music of the folk is in there somewhere.
Is there more?
