Hong Kong

In the 1950s, popular music of Hong Kong was largely dominated by pop songs in the English language until the Cantopop’s emergence in the mid-1970s. Western culture at the time was specifically a mark of education and sophistication. Inspired and influenced by imported popular music from the West such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Mathis and The Beatles, Hong Kong artists began to produce English language pop music in the 1960s.
