What is Japan Music Corner?

Posted: July 25, 2011 in Electro, Hip Hop, J-Pop, J-Rock, Jazz

I want to popularize Japanese music — J-pop, j-rock, and jazz etc., to the world. International music of all types have little exposure in this country because the music industry only plays and promotes American and Western popular music. Japan Music Corner believes in music equality — the understanding and appreciation of all music. Our goal is also to present quality Japanese music.

My first exposure to J-pop was listening to early J-pop stars like Hiromi Iwasaki, Anne Lewis, and Seiko Matsuda from a Japan home stay guest. Japan Music Corner articles will highlight the talented but unknown indie musicians. Indie musicians generally maintain their musical originality without compromise.

J-pop music is very broad genre that incorporates American popular music such as rock, hip hop, rap, electro, electronic, and jazz, as well as, euro-dance, and Japanese music. It is usually more upbeat and also emphasizes the beat or the harmony rather than the lyrics. J-pop is much different that American popular music but with an open mind you can appreciate it.
