Disco is a genre of music containing elements of funk, soul, pop, salsa and psychedelic that was most popular in the mid and late 1970s, though it has since enjoyed brief resurgences. The term is derived from discotheque (French for “library of phonograph records”, but subsequently used as proper name for nightclubs in Paris). Its initial audiences were club-goers from the African American, Italian American, Latino, and psychedelic communities in New York City and Philadelphia during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Disco also was a reaction against both the domination of rock music and the stigmatization of dance music by the counterculture during this period. Women embraced disco as well, and the music eventually expanded to several other popular groups of the time.
