Gqom Style Overview
Gqom Music Description
Gqom is a genre of electronic dance music that emerged in the early 2010s from Durban, South Africa. It was developed from kwaito, a subgenre of house music from South Africa. Unlike other South African electronic music, gqom is typified by minimal, raw and repetitive sound with heavy bass beats but without the four-on-the-floor rhythm pattern.
