  Cantopop



粵語流行音樂
       Cantonese Popular Music
Cantopop (Chinese: 粵 語 流 行 音 樂 ) is a contraction of
"Cantonese popular music". It is sometimes referred to as
HK-pop, short for "Hong Kong popular music". The term
"Cantopop" has its origin in "Cantorock", a term first used in
1974 to describe rock music in Hong Kong by Billboard
correspondent Hans Ebert. Later in 1978 Ebert revised the
term to "Cantopop" after noting a change in its style to
something similar to British-American soft-rock. It now
describes a contemporary category of popular music made
primarily in Hong Kong in the Cantonese language since
the 1970s, and the cultural context of its production and
consumption.
