World Pop Music

World pop attempts to encompass all the worlds of popular music, from Mexican punk to Balkan brass-fueled club beats, from Senegalese hip-hop to Chinese indie rock. This category also includes indigenous popular traditions, like Indonesian dangdut and jaipongan, West African highlife, Brazilian baile funk, and Egyptian shaabi, not to mention the many "world" pop genres that have influenced American and British popular music like Cuban dance music, Indian bhangra and Jamaican dub. There's also "world beat," from the 1980s that helped spawn some of the biggest global pop stars of the last few decades, such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Manu Chao, and Zap Mama.
