(AsiaOne)   Canto-pop, having peaked in 1997 and declined thanks to formulaic and irrelevant music, is making a comeback thanks to new generation of collaborative HK musicians influenced by rock, R&B and hip-hop rather than karaoke-ready sappy love songs   (asiaone.com) divider line

I thought this was some kind of Gregorian chant, not a k-pop analogue.

/canto is Italian for song/singing, based on the Latin cognate cantus

Any good recommendations? The first things I found on YouTube were pretty much sappy love songs or BTS clones.

Put me down for someone who thought of Dead Can Dance or Enigma when hearing "Canto pop".

Firmly in the "WTF is Canto-Pop" camp.  If you're going to make a term for Cantonese Pop maybe don't shorten the first word into another word that's Latin for singing.
