The 1970’s saw the rise of Disco which became one of the biggest music genres from the middle to the end of the decade.
We also seen Punk Rock make its imprint on music again from the middle to the end part of the decade. Other elements of rock became increasingly popular with sub-genres like Glam Rock, Hard Rock, Progressive Rock, Art Rock and Heavy Metal.
Reggae gathered a significant following during the decade and Hip Hop started to emerge.
Electronic music gained some momentum with the introduction of synthesizers and harmonizers. Developments in this area saw the growth of Synthpop, Electro and Electric Dance Music which would take the next decade by storm.
