Folklife is the expressive arts, practices, and lifeways that emerge from within a community. Folklife that is passed through generations grows into the 传统al arts of that community. Traditional arts are often deeply rooted in a geographic location and its religious, 民族和职业群体, or they are carried with immigrant and migrant communities as they establish themselves in new homes.
