comment What is the oldest musical composition that can still be listened to today?
@Rohit Thanks. (When applied to music that old, IMO a formal distinction between folk and classical music makes little practical sense.)

@Rohit If it's a faithful reproduction then yes. I'd like to get a sense e.g. what kind of music was experienced by ancient Romans. I have some impressions from movies and the like, but there is presumably little faithfulness in such sources. Back to the say 16th century I generally find European music the older the more beautiful and I am also interested in whether this may (in parts) extent even further back into (global) history.

Without disrespect: I cannot discern whether this is indeed very old or the soundtrack of an upcoming Bollywood movie. So please add some more evidence.
