Pinoy Pop Culture
This book by Gilda Cordero-Fernando and M.G. Chavez offers an insight into Philippine pop culture. Identifying Pinoy pop as a distinctly urban phenomenon, the book differentiates it from folk or ethnic culture. It looks into how Filipinos take aspects of foreign culture and transform them into localized versions. It features icons such as Dolphy, Sylvia La Torre, Nora Aunor, Yoyoy Villame, and Ma Mon Luk. It also includes a chapter on the vocabulary of pop, with a glossary of Pinoy terms and expressions.
