Record sales, concert attendance, numbers of performers, radio and television airplay are all quantifiable indicators of popularity”<br />Popular music can be seen as the main commercially produced and marketed musical genres. The emphasis is on traditional rock and pop forms and their various derivative genres such as rap, world music and the various style of dance music. As new technologies and globalisation has taken hold; popular music has changed in the way it is produced and consumed.<br />
