Music and visuals are not always a good marriage but there are some great performances of Folia tunes at the internet in motion pictures and there are practically no barriers to expose these performances to visitors.
From this website also some vinyl recordings of Folía which never made it to compact disc (or other digital formats), and some live radio broadcastings are included at YouTube to illustrate the listed items of the Folía inventory.
Some new items of the inventory will be added on a regular base for material that otherwise would slip into oblivion.
