Yeah. In the past, pop songs just purely imitated Western R&B (Rhythm and Blues) hip-hop and rap. In the last few years, a lot of musicians have started to incorporate some traditional Chinese elements into pop music. Think of Wang Li Hong's new song ''Beside the Plumtree" which gets its inspiration from ''The Peony Pavilion," a Kun Opera. David Tao's ''Su San Says" has a bit of the charm of Beijing opera. And a lot of Jay Chow's songs make use of classical poetry and Chinese ethnic instruments. I like them a lot.
