Here's a terrific selection of folk songs from the U.S., Brazil, China, Germany, Japan, Korea, and Russia, with a wide variety of styles. The string parts use fun techniques like col legno, glissando, pizzicato, and even some clapping. The violin part uses first position throughout. The cello does shift and position work is clearly marked. All of the parts are playable by second year students. Katak Lampat (Jump, Little Frog!) - Indonesian Oh!
