Welcome to Rhythms of the World
The National Folk Festival’s Folk Arts Education Online!
Apart from presenting one of the longest-running folk festivals in Australia www.folkfestival.org.au the National Folk Festival includes education as one of its main strategic aims.
In particular the oral approach to learning folk music and the way in which engagement with folk music and its history, geography and anthropology can have a cross-curricula benefit in education.
This site forms a Virtual Museum of Musical Instruments and their respective traditions from around the world.
