Chinese Pop Music
Cantopop was once the leading genre of Chinese popular music, having its humble origin in the 1950s and rising to a multimillion-dollar business in the mid-1990s. Since then, Taiwan’s unique brand of Mandopop has transformed the musical taste in the Chinese-speaking world. More recently, the heat wave of Kpop has dominated Asia and beyond.
The study of the music we love can tell us so much about our cultural identity and consciousness. We compiled a list of books on this latest theme for our Popular Books Collection. Check them out!
