This project founded by David Grandison Jr. one of the creators of Making A Brand has been delivering on its mission to geolocate the history and future of music for almost 10 years…  Map markers identify cultural regions, historic locations and venues where musical art forms originated and were incubated. This map is a multimedia lens for the exploration of each art form. You can view each location on your PC, mobile device or even in VR!

The team who creates the content is made up of expert volunteers and students who are passionate about music. and the arts. The team takes time out to speak in schools and offers free virtual field trips for students as well.

Music Origins Project aims to remove the chronological and geographic barriers faced by music aficionados, students and travelers seeking to learn about the origins of musical genres in compelling and sometimes forgotten locations around the world.
