The term «folia» appears in Portuguese sources from the end of the 15th century and beginning of the 16th century and is referred to in Auto da Sibila Cassandra by the Portuguese playwright Gil Vicente (c.1465 – c.1536), written around 1513, as a dance interpreted by shepherds. This musical structure (harmonic and rhythmic) conquered the entire Peninsula for a century and established itself as a popular model in Italy, France and England, in the 17th and 18th centuries. Musically, the festivities are divided into two eras: the old one that extends from 1577 to 1674; and the late one that expanded from 1672 to 1750 in France and England. In 2023, Filipe Faria and Sérgio Peixoto visit the history of this structure to compose, in Folia Nova, new villancicos on 16th-century Portuguese poetry by Gil Vicente (c.146 – c.1536), Bernardim Ribeiro (1482? – 1552?) and Pêro de Andrade Caminha (1520 – 1589), among others.
