Smithsonian Folkways

http://www.folkways.si.edu/

This is a great resource if you are looking for folk music. It includes Cajun, Blues, Carribbean, Celtic, India, and a little of everything. It is easy to think of folk music in the terms of a bearded man and his acoustic guitar, but this website encompasses musical traditions that span the globe.
