Lusophone music

Lusophone music, interchangeably music from Portugal and Portuguese-speaking countries, is music that comes either from Portuguese-speaking countries, or from anywhere as long it is being performed in Portuguese or Portuguese-based creole languages. Generally this term is not used outside of the internet, because of some cultural differences between the peoples of the different Portuguese-speaking countries, but identity questions make a part of the shared relationship between the groups of Portuguese-speakers around the world and thus people from these different nations can have a taste for the culture of each other, as seen in the success of Brazilian media (such as music and telenovelas) in Portugal.
