Beetween appropriation and absorbtion. About taking from the folk traditions in musical folkorism
Languages of publication
Forms of thinking about folk culture almost without resistance undergo exploitation by ideologies. Folk culture is a specific form of tradition, in a sense its ideal condition. The sustainable and holistic folk culture becomes a reservoir of traditional values actualized in ritual and customary actions. The appropriation of folk culture by a dominant culture starts on the level of free selection of the motives to take from a particular tradition. The folkorist’s autorecommendation as continuators of tradition give them the occasion to use the authority on its forms. The dominant cultures auspice on the folk culture proclaim the firm distinctive postulate to keep the folk tradition for its own well-being in the frames appointed by the expert-folklorist. The reconstructing folklorism and museum folkoristics need the still waypoint and the fluctuation of tradition undercuts their foundations. The preference to lifeless steerable forms of rural culture denudes based on the noble and peasant culture opposition intentions to colonize and ideologically or substantially appropriate the rural cultures goods, because this culture has no ability to talk itself.
