The enrichment of the Prog with folk elements was especially popular in the 70s. Important features were the use of folkloristic instruments and alternative guitar tunings as well as texts related to nature or the history of the homeland. Nevertheless, the term "Folkprog" is spongy. In fact, only a few groups can be clearly located in this genre, and not necessarily over a longer period of time. In addition, the boundaries between (progressive) folk and psychedelic folk are fluid.

Eight years Deep Purple have been dragging into the country between "Rapture Of The Deep" and their current release "NOW What?! - the longest span since "Come Taste The Band"/"Perfect Strangers".
