Well, my tastes are very different as well... I always try to listen to music in the language that surrounds me while I travel so here you have a bit of everything that I like (I'm mostly old fashioned!):

  • opera (my favorite composer is Rossini, so... italian opera buffa)
  • musical theatre
  • tango
  • salsa
  • Francis Cabrel (fr)
  • Jean-Jacques Goldman (fr)
  • Queen
  • Genesis
  • Stevie Wonder (you are the sunshine of my life!...lalala and I just called to say "I love you"!!)
  • big band jazz
  • "world music"
  • Manu Chao
  • Sergent Garcia
  • Louise Attaque
  • Zucchero
  • Eros Ramazzotti
  • Xavier Naidoo (German pop)

I live breath and eat music but doesn't any one else like to leave their "usual" music at home and pick up new music and inspiration in the places they're travelling??

I know that if I took music with me I'd never have the incentive to immerse myself, I found some awesome music when I went to Brazil driven by the fact I hadn't taken any of my own...

just a thought
