Hybridization is a term introduced to culture by Homi Baba a literary theorist. It refers to a cultural assimilation of foreign elements into a native culture. Music is a classic example. Cultural hybridization can also occur in reverse when a foreign culture assimilates native elements. A classic example of is the cross carved from stone adopted by the Catholic and Orthodox churches in India. Oil is put in a lamp and it’s placed in the grooves of the stone. This is a cultural adaption from the stone carvings of the Linga, or the Phallus of God Shiva. So hybridization can be adoption of foreign elements with a native one or its reverse adoption of native elements to a foreign culture.
