I don't know much about Folkloric music but I made a call to INATEL
and found out that they have indeed a Folk music department.
They have some experts on the matter and they maintain a data base with
detailed information concerning 1200+ (!) Portuguese Folk dance
Their address is:
Divisao de Etnografia e Folclore do INATEL
Calcada de Santana, 180
You may write to them either in Portuguese or English.
