Kayōkyoku Music Description

The little brother of Enka, kayoukyoku started as "western styled" songs in the 1920s. After the war, kayoukyoku became the dominant form of popular music until the mid-late 1970s, when overtly "western" songs with no traditional Japanese musical influence became dominant.
