Parameters

native_name 
name in local language. If more than one, separate using {{Plain list}}
native_name_lang 
ISO 639-2 code e.g. "fr" for French. If more than one, use {{lang}} instead
etymology 
meaning or derivation of the name
color 
Colour used for the headings. See WikiProject Music/Music genres task force/Colours.
bgcolor 
Colour used for the headings' backgrounds.
derivatives 
List of influenced genres that follow in the traditions of the parent without necessarily being a subcategory.
subgenres 
List of child genres that fall within a subcategory of the parent. Genres and subgenres must be capitalized (ex: house music).
subgenerelist 
Article containing the complete list of subgenre
regional_scenes 
Articles specializing in regional variants of the parent genre (ex: British rock, American pop)
local_scenes 
Articles specializing in local scenes related to the genre (ex: Madchester, The Scene That Celebrates Itself)
current_year 
set to yes to include a link to the "2016 in <genre>" article at the bottom of the infobox. Link will update automatically for new years, once the "<new year> in <genre>" article has been written. (If no article has been written for the old year nor the new year, it will redlink the new year's article to encourage its creation.) If the link does not update, try purging the page. Has two optional further parameters:
current_year_title 
The "2016 in <genre>" function assumes that the current page's title is the genre's name (i.e., if you use this on classical music, it will link to "2016 in classical music"). If that is not the case, use this parameter to specify the genre's name. The annual-update feature will work just the same.
current_year_override 
This overrides the whole parameter, for if the desired article uses some unusual title formulation (e.g. "2010s in classical music"). If this parameter is used, the link will not update for new years.
