Description

Made in Hong Kong: Studies in Popular Music serves as a comprehensive and thorough introduction to the history, sociology, and musicology of twentieth and twenty-first century popular music in Hong Kong. The volume consists of essays by leading scholars in the field, and covers the major figures, styles, and social contexts of popular music in Hong Kong. Each essay provides adequate context so readers understand why the figure or genre under discussion is of lasting significance. The book is organized into four thematic sections: Cantopop, History and Legacy; Genres, Format and Identity; Significant Artists; and Contemporary Cantopop.
