Depends on whether you mean keeping the traditions as they
historically were (that way lies ossification, possibly), or continue
to adapt and evolve.
Musically for instance, we don't have a lot of Celtic-originating
instruments, but somehow fiddle music is very much part of the
tradition. Or the adoption of fretted string instruments, from spanish
guitar, to italian mandolin, to greek bouzouki.
