Parent Genre: Hip Hop

Barbershop music is a style of a cappella singing that originated in the United States in the late 19th century. It is characterized by four-part harmony, with the melody sung by the lead, harmonies by the tenor and baritone, and a bass line. The genre is known for its tight harmonies, intricate arrangements, and upbeat tempo. It often features songs from the early 20th century, such as Tin Pan Alley and Broadway tunes. Barbershop music has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years, with contemporary groups putting their own spin on the classic sound.
