As of this writing, Asian groups are hitting the all-around charts. Korean pop groups and Japanese bedrock bands are landing in markets and cultures ahead bedeviled by Western music.
Videos of KPop babe bands (that's Korean pop, for the uninitiated) such as Wonder Girls, are beheld in their millions on YouTube. Their single, "Nobody", is an all-embracing hit. Meanwhile, the antecedents of JRock (ie., Japan rock) and beheld kei - XJapan - captivated concerts in America, with bout dates on assorted cities of the United States.
Without a doubt, Asian music has accomplished accumulation address on a common scale. And their fan afterward from countries added than Japan and Korea are growing. But KPop and JRock abide to be altar of curiosity.
Although their music is abiding in abreast Western forms - rap, hip-hop and R&B (rhythm and blues) for KPop, and punk, bedrock and metal for JRock, their lyrics are mostly in their own civic language. Meaning, their non-Korean and non-Japanese admirers do not accept the bulletin to the songs! It is as if the all-around byword of the abreast adolescence is "Never apperception the message; just dig the music!" They do not appreciate the lyrics of the songs. Yet, they appear in droves to apprehend them in concerts. And even download them accurately and are paying for it. Shocking, yet true, the "kids of today" even attending and dress like their idols. The Japanese subculture of Cosplay (again apparel play, for the uninformed; area admirers dress up brand their admired anime/cartoon characters) is aswell a all-around phenomenon.
The question, therefore, are both trends a affidavit of the so alleged "universality of music"? Of music getting the accepted language?
A acquaintance of abundance would beg to differ. He says, both are examples of "cultural imperialism", area a ability from an economically ascendant country anon and alongside influences and subjugates the ability of added astern nations. In simple terms, he angle KPop and JRock as the ascendancy of Western music over the cultures of Japan and Korea.
I do not agree. Though I admit the "pressures" - absolute and aberrant - of bread-and-butter questions (such as Western cartel over the production, administration and commercial in the all-around music industry) on cultural issues amid nations, his appearance concentrates alone on the affair of "musical form".
I accept that if we chase his logic, the alone authentic and accurate music (and ability in general) would, then, be "ethnic music" (or the indigenous culture) of altered nations. Such opinion, I think, is "narrow puritan-ism".
Music - and ability - is always evolving inasmuch as humans of altered backgrounds amalgamate and interrelate with anniversary other. Civic cultures are abandoning a multi-racial and all-around melting pot, facilitated by the development of the Internet and added agency of avant-garde technology. Truly, there is alone one chase - the animal race.
Yet, American ascendancy in the accord of nations could not be denied. The access of Western music over Asian music is a by-product of America's all-around bread-and-butter celebration afterwards World War 2.
But added capital catechism to me is not the "form" of music but its bulletin or its "substance". A agitation in agreeable anatomy should be admired as simple banana pursuits. On a lighter note, my sister and I fabricated a website that pits JRock admirers adjoin KPop addicts but alone for the simple fun of cogent oneself. But that is addition story. Hence, added important than the average (musical form) is the message.
Sadly, art (and music in particular) are in an industry driven, primarily, by profit. It is in the business not to advance aesthetic abandon and announcement but to accomplish money out of accomplished (sometimes not-so-talented) people.
But there are a "chosen few", who may appear from altered - even allegory - agreeable forms but are accustomed the befalling to absolutely accurate themselves, even if such announcement is not profitable. To digest guitarist and industry adept Eric Clapton, he says in his adventures that the percentages in the music industry are still the same: says, the allotment are still the same: 95% debris and 5% pure. And who are we to disagree? "Clapton is God", says the graffiti in backward sixties London. And God can't be wrong, right? (smiles)
So we go aback to the question, is the all-around address of JRock and KPop a appearance of the absoluteness of music? Yes, but alone partly. Because if they use altered gimmicks such as accepting Korean girls abrasion deficient abbreviate shorts to advertise their songs, that is if music takes a backseat and "profit" takes allegation over the council wheel. But still, they are fun to watch, aren't they? Pervert! (smirks) #
