    There are cities that have made an indelible mark on music as incubators of genres that changed, and are changing, history. These are their stories.

The pages of this book map an atlas of musical cities, from Rio de Janeiro to Seoul, that have made a notable and significant contribution, and bring them to life through the stories of their most important experiences.
