Cantonese music, or Guangdong music, is a form of traditional Chinese instrumental music from Guangzhou and surrounding areas in Guangdong Province on the southern coast of China.


The music does not represent the whole Guangdong area, where there are numerous traditional forms of music such as Chaozhou and Hakka. The name originated in the 1920s and 1930s when the music was popular in Shanghai ballrooms in the form of "spiritual" music.
