Music travels through commercial or informal digital broadcasts, downloads, recordings, films, etc. impacting travelers’ consciousness either in a positive or negative way. It enhances the ambience of a place. Background music providers have also tracked this and incorporated the idea in their offerings. For instance, Beatsuite offers adventure and travel genre of music, which can be sorted by mood/themes, keywords, popularity, and release date.
