The focus is on the exploration of local influences and global forces in the production of music. The A. explores how local resources intersect with global ones in a process of transculturation. Using the example of English songs by a songwriter and artiste whose works are part of the popular music industry mainstream, and that of Mandarin songs of the genre xinyao, the A. shows that, despite increasing globalising forces, music is still an expression of local/national influences
