Music Facts: Contemporary Instrumental
Contemporary instrumental music covers several genres, but it contains a distinctly modern element that sets it apart from other instrumental styles.
The Contemporary Instrumental Music Field was first introduced at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2015; the Best Pop Instrumental Album category was renamed Best Contemporary Instrumental Album that same year.
Of the past six GRAMMY Awards shows, the band Snarky Puppy has won the GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album three times.
