MCD403 Music Production GDB Solution & Discussion Spring 2020


Folk is basically a term used to describe all sorts of musical, oral and cultural traditions from specific regions and societies across the world. A broad general definition of "folk" music is that it is music of the "folk" or of the people.  In recent years, new songs have changed the music in Pakistan and the songs that trend now are loud and meaningless for the most part.


Do you think that Folk music is at risk of fading out because modern tunes have dominated the music of Pakistan? Discuss in logical manner.
