Questions like "Trapped in folklore?" open up many possibilities for reflection and prompt different answers. This thematic publication with a rather provocative title discusses questions as to whether the selected musical phenomena are a fossilised form of tradition, folklore and folklorism and, as such, are trapped in a museum-like image isolated from contemporary cultural life, or whether we are looking at active events, changes and adjustments within contemporary society. The aim of the publication is to present the openness and diversity of views on folklore and to create a connection between (past and present) folklore phenomena, between researchers and between their fields of expertise.
