Parent Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Drone folk is a subgenre of folk music that emphasizes the use of sustained or repeated notes, creating a hypnotic and meditative effect. It often incorporates elements of blues and country music, and is characterized by its raw, unpolished sound. The lyrics tend to be introspective and poetic, exploring themes of love, loss, and the human condition. The genre has seen a resurgence in recent years, with a new generation of artists drawing inspiration from its rich history.
