Music of Macao

Starting from the Portuguese entry into Macao in the mid-16th century to the close of St. Paulo College in 1762, the period can be regarded as the early age of the recorded Macao music history. The middle period (from the mid-18th century to the late 19th century) saw the prosperity of secular music and the juxtaposition of multiple cultures. In the context of highly developed economy and relative cultural demands, historical transmission and cultural accumulation have led to the convergence and hybridization of different music styles in many ways, shaping a multiple-dimension landscape.
