The below video explains how you can change the genre of a song (melody) by reharmonizing it. Specifically, it looks at the types of chords used, the types of chord progressions used, and how the melody interacts with the harmony for each genre used. Check it out if you're interested.

Thank you very much ; it is interesting to get acquainted with alternative ideas of harmonization. IMO, however, the view should be wider. The concept of Different Genres includes different rhythms, different harmonic rhythms, different approaches to building voicings, their measure of dissonance, density and latitude, types of chord connections; and in the end, the used timbres .For example, in pop music, the typical tension inside the triads, in addition to sevenths, is created by adding a fourth or second step, or voicings sus 4/2. If the pulse of chords is in quarters, then the acoustic piano is most suitable for this situation. However, already in 1959 in “So That”, Bill Evans' intuitive concept in accompaniment demonstrated the lack of a long piano sound under the extreme duration of each chord playing the role of modal tonic, McCoy Tyner generally used a dumper combined with a tremolo. All this signaled the need of electric keyboard instruments for modal jazz ; the first of which was the Wurlitzer piano. And with the new timbre, another types of chords gradually appeared - Rhodes Chords .
