The following folk songs have been collected from many traditions, regions, and countries. We have purposefully kept the collection small. We don’t want you to get overwhelmed with choices. (Click here for a longer list of songs.) Some people like to sing songs from countries where their ancestors lived. Others like to sing about the countries they are studying. There is no wrong choice! Happy singing.
This page offer English-language versions of the songs. For foreign language songs, click here. This page is a work in progress and is updated periodically.
