General Characteristics of Folk and Primitive Music 19
Instrumental folk music usually differs from songs in the essentials of its style, being at least partially constructed on the basis of the technical possibilities and limitations of the instrument, with each instrument commanding a style of its own. But this should not be construed to mean that instrumental music and song do not influence each other. Quite the contrary, some cultures imitate the sounds of instruments in their vocal music, and many songs are assimilated into the instrumental repertories.
