Musica Folklorica is a unique musical band, which is predominantly specialized in folk melodies from the Moravian and Slovak border region. The band combines elements of traditional Moravian, Slovak, Hungarian, and Romanian folk music in a specific way, with extensions to other music genres, all in an author's package of original arrangements and brilliant performances. The band does not avoid daring crossovers, either. A project called Temptament, which has been released through ethno-metal ensemble Chismatic and was awarded as the second-best act in the category of World Music at the ISC Nashville music festival in 2014, is obvious evidence of the above. Musica Folklorica has also introduced new impulses into the means of releasing and promotion of folk music, especially through shooting folk music videos, which has raised the attention of fans of other music genres as well.

The band collaborates with well-established performers of folk songs. Recitals of Luboš Holý († 2011) and Dušan Holý, who is a well-known ethnomusicologist across Europe, capture traditional vocal interpretation, which is typical for the Carpathian region located at the borders of Moravia and Slovakia. Veronika Malatincová and Martin Prachař belong to the most influential personnel within the new generation of folk singers, and their solo records feature songs, either sad or lively, which are treated in an unusual way and are interpreted with feeling. Emotional affection is bolstered by women's choruses Oskoruša and Lipina.
