Evolution of Western Dance Music

Map of the Evolution of Western Dance Music

When different cultures meet, ideas are shared, and this gives rise to new ideas. ‘Ideas’ is a big category too. It covers everything from new ways of understanding the world, forms of behaviour and social structures, to new forms of art and creativity. This is a founding principle of Cult.

This Map of the Evolution of Western Music is a great way to visualise how this has happened in one particular form of art, and how it has accelerated as integration and communication between different people from different cultures has increased. As you can see, we’re basically living in the middle of a cultural explosion, the likes of which humanity has never seen before.
