Description

This volume sets out to examine non-Western urban music styles, from familiar genres like reggae and salsa to the lesser-known regional styles of Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, non-Western Europe, Asia and the near East. The author establishes parameters that distinguish popular music from both folk and classical music, defining popular music as music created with the mass media in mind and reproduced on a mass basis as a saleable commodity for large public consumption.show more
