For purposes of discussion and exploration of the topic, music is divided into genres and sub-genres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often unclear and / or controversial. Within “the arts “, music can be classified as a performing art , a fine art , or an auditory art form.
Music genres :
Calypso : A music form that developed in the mid 20th century out of Kaiso music. The genre became a worldwide hit 1950’s when the 1956 album titled Calypso was the first full-length record to sell more than a million copies.
Calypso’s most notable and popular subgenre is Soca music.
Classical: Music that was composed from around the 16th century to the 19th century by composers, like Beethoven .
Some (though not all) categorize modern original music that is done in the styles of that time “classical” as well.
Opera, Operette and Zarzuela .
Folk : Musical adaptations of old stories that were passed from generation to generation. Considered somewhat more niche now.
Rock: Music that originated from Folk and Blues. It used newer electrical instruments instead of relying solely on the classical woodwinds and stringed instruments. It first became popular in the mid 20th century because of famous bands like The Beatles.
Heavy metal : Similar to Rock, and generally considered a subgenre of it. It usually uses the same electrical instruments, but the music is more intense and less “pop” in style (see below) such as Black Sabbath or Ozzy Osbourne.
Pop : “Pop music” once referred to any popular music during the time period, though the term has slowly gained use as a more specific (yet still somewhat vague) genre descriptor for music with a catchy, relatively consistent melody, among other aspects. It is commonly placed as having started in the mid 20th century, alongside Rock music. Much dance music falls under this genre, and much modern Rock music is considered to include elements of it as well, since bands such as the Beatles were a significant stylistic influence on what is now considered Pop.
Rhythm and Blues – an evolving range of genres that first began to develop in the early 20th century.
Blues: A somewhat somber, quieter style of music whose name refers to the unhappiness of the performer, and which gained popularity in the early 20th century alongside Jazz, and influenced the early development of Rock music. A major genre within R&B, and one of its earliest genres as well.
Rap music and Hip hop – more rhythmically-based, mostly urban-derived genres, with a wide array of subgenres between them.
Jazz – an experimental, often brass-heavy and frequently somewhat less-structured genre of music that first evolved in the early 20th century, most prominently followed during the Roaring Twenties but still in existence today.
