Gangtai (Chinese: 港台 or 港臺; pinyin: Gǎng Tái) is the C-pop songs, artists, and music from Hong Kong or Taiwan.

Terminology[edit]

The term is synonymous with post-1960 cantopop or post-1970 mandopop, a sweet, love type melody found distinctly in C-pop and not any other genre of Chinese folk, rock, or traditional music.

The term also may be used to refer to mainland China singers imitating the HK/Taiwan singing style.[1]
