2. Imran Khan - Bewafa BangraBangra is a form of dance and music that originated in the Punjab region. Bhangra dance began as a folk dance conducted by Punjabi Sikh farmers to celebrate the coming of the harvest season. The specific moves of Bhangra reflect the manner in which villagers farmed their land. This dance art further became synthesized after the partition of India, this was when refugees from different parts of the Punjab shared their folk dances with individuals who moved to the regions they settled in. This hybrid dance became Bhangra. The folk dance has been popularized in the western world by Punjabi Sikhs and is seen in the West as an expression of South Asian culture as a whole. Today, Bhangra dance survives in different forms and styles all over the globe – including pop music, film soundtracks, collegiate competitions and even talent shows.

Drake - Headliines Hip HopHip hop music is a musical genre that developed as part of hip hop culture, and is defined by four key stylistic elements: • Rapping • DJing/scratching • Sampling (or synthesis) • Beatboxing Hip hop began in the South Bronx of New York City in the 1970s. The term rap is often associated with hip hop, but hip hop denotes the practices of an entire subculture. Rapping, also referred to as MCing or emceeing, is a vocal style in which the artist speaks lyrically, in verse and rhyme, generally to an instrumental or synthesized beat. Beats, almost always in 4/4 time signature, can be created by sampling and/or sequencing portions of other songs by a producer. They also incorporate synthesizers, drum machines, and live bands.

Grime, however, is a cross pollinated genre, taking influence from a variety of different cultural styles as well as musical ones and is therefore still in many respects considered to be underground music, even after mainstream exposure. It exists in a largely informal economy in which mostartists make their debuts on independently-produced battle DVDs that, like mix tapes are sold out of barbershops and make their way around the city. Artists receive a lot of help frompirates and radio stations which keep the public up to date with the music.

Grime artists usually make their fame and popularity through social networking sight such as Twitter, Facebook, Grime Blog, GrimeDaily, S.B TV, Grime music does not tend to come on music channels like MTV, it usually comes on channels like Channel A.K.A, Flava and Starz, there are also TV programmes that interview upcoming grime artists, programmes like Tim Westwood TV.
8. Oasis – Wonderwall Indie Indie rock is a genre of Rock music, and a means of producing that music, that originated in the United Kingdom and the United States in the 1980s. It is rooted in earlier genres such as Alternative Rock, Post-Punk, and new wave.The meaning of the term "Indie Rock" is contested today by many musicians, fans and commentators. Some use the term "indie" to describe any music produced by artists working within the network of independent recordlabels and underground music venues that emerged in the United States and elsewhere in 1980s and 1990s. Othersunderstand Indie Rock as a distinct genre of Rock music with a specific artistic beauty, and care less about the context in which it is made. Many embrace both meanings of the word, believing that the beauty of the genre and its means of production are deeply linked together. Indie rock artists are known for placing a premium on maintaining complete control of their music and careers, releasing albums on independent record labels and relying on touring, word-of-mouth, airplay on independent or college radio stations and, in recent years, the Internet for promotion. However, in the 2000s many acts with a musical style identified as "indie" signed to major record labels or their subsidiaries, and began promoting themselves through more traditional media outlets. This has led to a further blurring in the meaning of the term. A variety of musical genres and subgenres with varying degrees of overlap are associated with indie rock. Some of these include : • Pop • Indie Pop • Indie Folk • Dance Punk
