I am interested about this thing. Is it a style of music or an era of music? Anyone please tell me more details about this "Rococo".

Rococco music is melodic, frivolous, ornately textured music of the 18th century, best represented in the music of Scarlatti, Pergolesi, François Couperin, Daquin, Leclair, de Croix, and other western European composers of the keyboard, of the chamber ensemble, of sacred music, and of opera. An example from Mozart's ouvre would be the Kyrie in F, written when he was 10 years old. Musicologist Alfred Einstein calls it, "Gallic and songlike." Rococco music is dignified, aristocratic, and learned without being taxing. In a way rococco is the apotheosis of baroque sensibilty with the emergence of classical procedures and an aesthetic bent on expressivity and delicacy.

Yeah, well, that didn't necessarily mean it was only in France.
