WHAT DOES ELECTRONICA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Electronica

Electronica is a music genre encompassing a wide range of contemporary electronic music designed for a wide range of uses, including foreground listening, some forms of dancing, and background music for other activities. Unlike electronic dance music, not all examples of electronica are necessarily made for dancing. The genre is loosely defined and has different connotations in different regions and time periods. Electronica has grown to influence mainstream crossover recordings. Electronic sounds began to form the basis of a wide array of popular music in the late 1970s, and became key to the mainstream pop and rock sounds of the 1980s. Since the adoption of "electronica" in the 1990s to refer to more underground music with an electronic aesthetic, elements of modern electronica have been adopted by many popular artists in mainstream music.

Definition of electronica in the English dictionary
