Music Timeline of when music genres became popular in Japan I learned that Japanese music and Canadian music can sound a little different, but they are both special to their communities in their own way. I also learned that we have the same genres of music, but they sound different in the different countries. One of the reasons they sound different is because although they are the same genres, they are played with different instruments. Many people here in Canada enjoy Japanese music just as much as they do in Japan. * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Japan
