Main need at the moment; different levels of headings. Make some of them with 3 = so they are subheadings of the others.

Inaccuracies arising from lack of historical context.Edit

The article does not distinguish indigenous folk music from music influenced by western folk music. It's imperative that the article be re-organized to recognize folk music falls into Indigenous, Spanish colonial, American Colonial, and Contemporary categories, based on the historical period in which each tradition was introduced. When the article says, for example, that Philippine folk music is "Diatonic rather than Pentatonic," it needs to provide context. This may be fundamentally wrong for Indigenous folk music, while okay for music from later periods. - Chieharumachi (talk) 01:56, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
