J-pop

J-pop (ジェイポップ “jeipoppu”), an abbreviation for Japanese pop, is a musical genre that entered the musical mainstream of Japan in the 1990s. Modern J-pop has its roots in 1960s music, such as The Beatles, and replaced kayōkyoku (“Lyric Singing Music,” a term for Japanese pop music from the 1920s to the 1980s) in the Japanese music scene. The term was coined by the Japanese media to distinguish Japanese music from foreign music, and now refers to most Japanese popular music. Edit this Artist photo: 西野カナ

    A noble benefit of uncopyrighted music is it makes obtaining it easy and without the hassle of worrying about the legal status. If music is not on any store shelves, basically you can have it. Computers make obtainment of Asian music an ordinary action. The most technology-friendly device used today is called "Bit Torrent". It can compile 50 albums of music if you want. The loading time is not long. Americans "definitely are" willing to pay expensive import prices for Japanese music, if it is available in our shops. Therefore it can only be modest and beneficial for you to make Bit Torrent files with 50 albums of Japanese music. We very like the artist Yui. We like the Katamari Damacy soundtracks. Finding a Bit Torrent site is easy - yes.
