A FREE music app for android where I can choose a folder to play from


Does anyone know of a music app for android that allow me to choose a directory to play audio files from?

The default music player on my android tags anything that is audio and lists them for playback. If anyone knows a free app that does this please let me know.

Any of the *player apps should work. Winamp is my personal favorite.

winamp is good but it doesn't have the option to let me choose a folder to play audio files from. Winamp by default list all audio files it finds.

You see I am looking for a music app that will allow to me to choose/open a folder and play the audio files within that folder. Winamp doesn't have that unfortunately...
