In Venezuela and Colombian territories, the Joropo is formed as a significance of national identity and traditional self-expression. Consequently to the history of Joropo in Bloomsbury encyclopedia of popular music of the world, the term Joropo described a rural event until the second half of the twentieth century, when the Llanero version began to include both rural Joropo for fiestas (parties) and the urban Joropo for concert and stage performances. During the dictatorship of Perez Jimenez, the Joropo was declared a symbol of nation and nationalism because of the perceived strong and combative nature of the people represented in the dance and as a result its discussion gained great support. The urban Joropo, since it entered the radio waves, became to be recorded commercially, presented in major music shows and used for political expression, commercial jingles and since 1990 in music videos as well. The Joropo Llanero enjoyed such huge acceptance that nowadays its structures and its lively expression are used as a symbol of Venezuelan identity by academic composers, staged folklore groups, dance companies and others.

Musical milestones in popular music: Mobility between the Popular music and the Traditional/Cultural fields. Tahitian musicians easily adapt what they hear to their own musical repertoire (Yves Roche and Heitapu Chang, pers.comm., 25 September 2013), including jazz, American and French popular songs (from which the valse tahitienne [Tahitian waltz] genre emerged), blues-rock (leading to the “jeck” style in the 1960s) and rhythms derived from Latin music such as the bolero and the bossa nova, which infused in ʻukulele strumming. Coincidently with the adaptation of non-Polynesian musical genres during the twentieth century, Tahitian musicians have introduced Western musical instruments such as electric keyboards, beatboxes, and the electric guitar which Polynesians like playing with many effects, such as the echo (“Echoplex”).
