Parent Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Psychedelic folk music is a genre that emerged in the 1960s and combines elements of traditional folk music with psychedelic rock. It often features acoustic instruments, intricate fingerpicking, and poetic lyrics that explore themes of spirituality, nature, and personal introspection. The music is characterized by its dreamy, ethereal soundscapes, which are created through the use of reverb, echo, and other effects. It is known for its association with the counterculture movement and its use of psychedelic drugs to enhance the listening experience.
