Characteristics of the genre of pop music

In general, the pop music genre has certain characteristics in the use of rhythm that feels free by prioritizing the playing of drums and bass guitar.

The characteristics of the pop music genre that distinguish it from other types of music, such as:

The melody is easy to digest and easily accepted by the public. Easy to combine with other types of music.

The lyrics are in simple words, which are easy for the public to understand. Sometimes, the lyrics are also adapted to the latest trends that are booming among the public.

The harmonies are not too complicated and the tempo varies a bit (can be fast, can be slow, can be loud, but can also be slow). Usually the musical instruments used in pop music include guitar, bass, piano, drums, or keyboard.

Types of pop music

Pop music genres can be divided into several types, namely standard pop music, creative pop music, and ballad pop music.

  • Ballad pop music

    Among the pop music that I like the most is ballad pop which has a rhythm and flow of music that does not hurt the ears and hearts of those who hear it. Ballad pop music, its characteristics include: slow and medium tempo, varied melodic patterns because it is made for lyrical purposes. The lyrics tend to be expressive which can be in the form of satire, and tells about social feelings and the ups and downs of life.

According to wikipedia, ballad music is music in the form of a musical narrative. Ballads were particularly characteristic of popular poetry and song from the British Isles from the medieval period to the 19th century and were used extensively throughout Europe and later America, Australia, North Africa and Asia.

And almost all countries in the world have ballad singers who have a distinctive, smooth, romantic, unique and special voice.

In Indonesia, as proof of love for pop music, ballads have communication, namely the Indonesian ballad house consisting of famous ballad singers in Indonesia, led by Ully Rigar Rusady. Even in Indonesia, which consists of various tribes and customs, has a flow of ballad pop music which is combined with the characteristics of each region, such as North Sumatra, West Sumatra, Maluku, Papua. etc.
