double-spaced, no extra line between paragraphs, size 12 font, 1” margins. APA-style, cover page excluded.

topic:global pop the popular music developed in North American and Western Europe has had a profound influence on musical cultures around the world. For nearly a century many musicians from non-Western cultures have fused their local musical practices to the sounds of Western popular music to either compete on the world stage with Western artists or to modernize their sounds for a contemporary audience in their home countries.

Examples of this trend include: Ska (Jamaica), Bollywood music (India), K-Pop (Korea), and Afro Beat (Western Africa). Basing your analysis on a non-Western artist or style of your choice, explore the ways in which certain elements of North American popular music have been fused to the local culture to create a hybrid form of “Global” pop. Starting with a thesis statement that articulates a clear argument, address such questions as: How have these hybrid forms been received in their home cultures? How has globalization affected the music industry in your chosen area? Is this globalized pop music endangering distinct local traditions, or do they co-exist? Are there parts of local musical practices that are being lost due to North American influence? What musical or performance elements of North American pop music are being grafted on to the local musical traditions? What cultural challenges are presented by global pop? How have the materials of Western popular music been manipulated to fit into a local culture?
