Episode 99: Folk Music of India


Welcome back to our second episode in the Around the World with Busy Kids Love Music summer series. I absolutely loved researching this episode all about the folk music of India. Don’t skip out on the playlist I’ve put together for you below! There are so many beautiful and fascinating instruments that we’ll learn about in today’s episode, and I would love for you to SEE them being played and performed in the video clips.

If you’re new here, here’s how Around the World with Busy Kids Love Music works: With each new episode (new episodes air every 2 weeks), we’ll be traveling to a new country and learning about that particular place’s folk music. As you listen to each episode, you’ll collect a stamp to add to your passport while you work your way around the globe and learn about the incredible artists, cultures and communities that have contributed to folk music. Use the links below to download your passport and this episode’s stamp — from INDIA!
