Folktronica

Folktronica (sometimes called electrofolk) is a genre of music comprising various elements of folk music and electronica, often featuring samplings of acoustic instruments — especially stringed instruments — and incorporating hip hop rhythms. The label "folktronica" seems to have originated in the British press, having come to encompass performers and bands that include elements of ambient electronica, folk, jazz, classical, and hip-hop. In 2001, postmodern pop artist Momus released an album titled Folktronic deliberately exploring (and satirizing) the fusion.
