Topic: Groove (popular music)


  
  Rhythm-and-Blues Music - MSN Encarta
Rhythm-and-Blues Music or R&B, variety of different, but related, types of popular music produced and supported primarily by fl Americans beginning in the early 1940s (see African American Music).
Until white rock-and-roll performers such as Bill Haley and Elvis Presley achieved mass popularity in the mid-1950s, what was commonly referred to as rock and roll by white disc jockeys and fans was referred to as the latest style of R&B by fl disc jockeys and fans.
This influence can be traced in forms of rock music, country and western, gospel music, and jazz as well as in a variety of non-Western forms of music (see Worldbeat), including Nigerian juju, a style of popular dance music, and Algerian rai, another popular style distinguished by its rebellious lyrics.

 Popular music
Popular music, often called simply pop music, is music belonging to any of a number of contemporary musical styles broadly popular (ergo the term).
In this respect, popular music differs from traditional folk music, which is created by ordinary people for their own enjoyment; and much classical music, which was originally created to serve the purposes of the Church or for the entertainment of the nobility.
Today's music technology inevitably favors unlimited mass reproduction, which is one of the reasons why the music industry, using the weapon of copyright, is always fighting a rearguard battle against its free availability.

 A history of music
Disco music is an up-tempo style of dance music that originated in the early 1970s, mainly from funk and soul music, popular originally with gay and fl audiences in large U.S. cities, and derives its name from the French word discothèque (meaning nightclub), coined from disc + bibliotèque (library) by La Discothèque in Rue Huchette.
Rap music [origin: mid-1970s, New York City] is one of the elements of hip hop; it is a form of rhyming lyrics spoken rhythmically over musical instruments, with a musical backdrop of sampling, scratching and mixing by DJs.
Emerging in the early fifties, rock music was initially referred to as “rock 'n' roll.” After 1964 it was simply called “rock music.” The change in terminology indicates both a continuity with and a break from the earlier period; rock music was no longer just for dancing.
