From the early decades of the twentieth-century, debates about jazz and popular music have focused on origins and authenticity with regard to style and genre. These debates reflected immense changes in cultural production, especially the global circulation of jazz and popular music through the media of recording, radio, cinema, television, advertising and the Internet. Various historical performance practices were developed in response to the dramatically shifting boundaries of musical cultures, as previous traditions dissolved and newer ones came into being. These included the rediscovery of what were perceived to be original vocal or instrumental techniques associated with specific genres, the exhaustive documentation of past performances, the return to older values and ideas, and the replication of former performance venues and institutions.
