You can highlight anything that is important to the inception of a musical art form like a musician, producer, or style, or even an instrument.

Remember: If possible, highlight your subject in conjunction with a location that is important to the musical subject.
Be sure to share documents images, flyers, posters, social media posts of events, or images of artists. Also try to share an example of the musical style, if you can, by creating or finding a playlist or mix of related music using Spotify, SoundCloud or Mixcloud and sharing a link/embed code for it.
