European Musical Styles

Do you know where your favorite music comes from? If you are a fan of Jazz, you certainly know that Jazz is from New Orleans, and if you like Reggae you know that Reggae comes from Jamaica. But what about Trance, Grunge and Gothic Rock? Condor, the airline company, pleases us with this great map retracing the origins of our favorite musical styles. In Europe, the United Kingdom is home to the largest number of musical genres, including Indie Rock (also called Independent Rock), Grime and Drum & Bass. France is the next country, the cradle of A Cappella, as well as the French House and the Nouvelle Scène française. Then there is Germany with one of the best nightlife in Europe! Of course, Germany saw the birth of Trance, Dance and Glitch Pop.
