 Hindi Pop
 
Indian pop music, sometimes known as Indipop or Hindi pop is pop music of India. Basically, it is Indian folk or classical music, influenced by beats from different parts of the world.
 
Indian pop was reletavely non-existent until the late 1970s to early 1980s. The major push to bring South Asian music into a "pop" motif was Pakistani singer Nazia Hassan.
 
 

 
Several Indians have gained popularity in mainstream popular western music, especially rock. In fact, one of the greatest artists in classic Rock, Freddie Mercury, was of Indian origin and started his first band in an Indian boarding school. Other popular rock musicians include Kim Thayil and Dave Baksh. Also, Tony Kanal of the group No Doubt is Indian. Grammy-winning jazz singer Norah Jones is half-Indian, her father being sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar.
