C-pop is an abbreviation for Chinese popular music a loosely defined musical genre by artists originating from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. C-pop is sometimes used as an umbrella term covering not only Chinese pop but also R&B, ballads, Chinese rock, Chinese hip hop and Chinese ambient music, although Chinese rock branched off as a separate genre during the early 1990s. Chinese popular music was initially a vehicle for the Cultural Revolution and Maoist ideologies, however, during the country’s extensive political and cultural changes of the past 50 years, it has lost much political significance; and now closely resembles the styles of K-Pop and J-Pop, from South Korea and Japan, respectively.
