June 29, 2020

The increasing trend of modern tunes is becoming a great threat to folk music with the passage of time.

According to musicians, with the rapidly moving world venturing into the vistas of ultramodern civilization, the folk music is dying down as senseless with empty lyrics and music, rather the rock and pop music was shrinking space for the former to inherit the heritage of folklore and ancient culture.

They said there should be separate academies for traditional music in the country to keep it alive.

Folk artist Basheer Khan said that for the progress of the country, it was necessary to keep its culture and musical heritage alive so that the government could take steps for separate academies of folk music, adding that folk songs have defined cultures throughout the history and continue to do so.
