    Hi Grant

    I note you have “Qawwali” listed under “Inspirational – Christian & Gospel”. As Qawwali is an aspect of Sufism it is actually Islamic, not Christian/Gospel. Could I suggest a new Genre of ‘Inspirational – Islamic” for Qawwali?

    No Gospel?

    I am interested to know what steps are required to create an entirely new genre.

      Beyond us to create a new one just by adding to this list…
      My thoughts are perhaps a scholarly approach and finding music maestros to validate.
      Bottom line is anyone can create a new music genres, but that doesn’t mean it will be accepted by musicians!
      Best of luck!
