What’s an homage?

Here’s what Wikipedia offers.

“Homage is a show or demonstration of respect or dedication to someone or something, sometimes by simple declaration but often by some more oblique reference, artistic or poetic. The term is often used in the arts for where one author or artist shows respect to another by allusion or imitation; this is often pronounced like the French hommage

It was originally a declaration of fealty in the feudal system—swearing that one was the man of the feudal lord. The concept then became used figuratively for an acknowledgement of quality or superiority. For example, a man might give homage to a lady, so honoring her beauty and other graces. In German scholarship, followers of a great scholar developed the custom of honoring their mentor by producing papers dedicated to him.

In music homage can take the form of a composition (Homage to Paderewski), a tribute album (Homage to Charles Parker) or a sample.

As of 2010, the digital techniques used to generate many forms of media make it easy to borrow from other works and this remediation may be used in homage to them.”
