Folk doesn't mean Japanese folk songs (minyo) but new songs influenced by US modern folk music in the 1960s, such as Peter, Paul & Mary and Kingston Trio. In the late 1960s, folk singers began to sing more serious protest songs influenced by Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger. The folk boom laid the foundations of 'new music' and to a lesser degree rock in the 1970s.
