Thread Name: The Current Tradition
Subject: RE: The Current Tradition
Yes, it is a new form of a living tradition. I'm sure others have said similar to what I wrote on a recent post that as soon as the first field recordings were made, or maybe when the first such recordings were released as either of historic or enjoyment purposes, this music was inexorably changed. Don't take that to mean doom and gloom, but the nature of the music changed because those oral traditions have been gradually replaced.
