(also "doo wop")
A form of popular music, primarily but not exclusively the domain of black performers, which achieved prominence in the 1950s. Its most prominent element is close, multipart vocal harmonies, sometimes rendered accapella. The term "do wop" is typical of the the nonsense syllables often used as a chorus.
"The Great Pretender" by the Platters is probably the best known example of Do Wop music.
