In today's society, with the improvement of people's living standards, they also have a higher pursuit of spiritual and cultural aspects. Therefore, music art has become an important way to cause changes in people's inner feelings and aesthetic taste experience. This paper analyzes it from the perspectives of ethnomusicology and anthropology. First, it gives an overview of ethnomusicology, then analyzes its current research situation, and then theoretically expounds and proposes to analyze the music creation style and form characteristics in ethnic minority areas, as well as how to promote better and faster exchanges and cooperation between the people of all ethnic groups in China and promote mutual benefit through localization. After that, this paper adopts the form of questionnaire to investigate the current situation of students' learning of ethnic music. The survey results show that most students learn and learn ethnic music from music classes, the Internet and extramural activities. More than 80% of the respondents are interested in the content of ethnic music knowledge in music textbooks. The frequency of listening to ethnic music is 0.84-0.98, To sum up, it shows that most of the students like China's outstanding and have distinctive local characteristics, educational significance, profound cultural connotation and other characteristics, or a special aesthetic consciousness generated by the combination of national spirit and China's traditional art, which plays a significant role in all aspects of society. At the same time, because of its strong practicality and wide adaptability, So in the whole process, it will greatly improve people's quality of life.
