But apparently there is.
In Hong Kong, Canto-pop reigns supreme in the realm of music. It's all about the Twins, Eason Chen, Jay Chou, Hacken Lee, and the female/male idols of the moment.
Or so I thought. Traces of hip-hop have found their way into Canto-pop, which many have cited as a result of Edison Chan. There's actually Canto-rap now...not that it's very good. The only purpose it serves me is to send me into gales of laughter.
But I've discovered that Chinese music has its own indie underground where indie music really is independently produced, apart from the major labels unlike how the term indie has been used as of late to refer to a specific vaguely defined style of music in the US.
