Complete List of musical genres.

Updated: Jun 4

The most complete list of music genres and styles from every corner of the world.


The music genre is the best tool for everybody to find their favorite music. When you know your favorite genre, you definitely know how to find more music similar to your loved ones. But how many genres are there?


The complete list of music genres may never end. There is no “one list” that contains all the different genres and styles. Every culture and even city, has its own style of a certain genre, therefore we have as much as the number of cities in the world just for the genre of Pop. the same goes for every other genre too. We have tried to gather the most complete list of genres. We must surely give a lot of credit to the "music genre list" website for their amazing list. Though we made lots of changes especially under the folk and world music sub-genres to make it even more complete. Don’t forget to give us your feedback and let us know of any genre or style that you think is missing from our list.
