How did musical styles and trends circulate between 1800 and today?

How Music Travels is an interactive infographic by travel and holiday services company Thomson. The infographic provides a lens into how larger entertainment and media trends circulated from culture to culture, focusing exclusively on music. In addressing ‘influencer musical genres,' Thomson writes:

When the explosion of dance music arrived in the 80s, many genres arrived in the same five-year period as the genres they influenced. In this situation, the ‘influencer' genre starts to fade in on the map at the time the influencing line appears.
