Me, Music and Travel

I am a hardcore music lover irrespective of genre, It’s like I live in a musical, and sometimes I wish, life had background music. Imagine yourself waking up to your favourite song, and you moonwalk out of your bed! Feel good music playing for all the happy moments and lullaby to sleep!

And whenever I travel, I never miss an opportunity to embrace the mystic power of music, be it live music clubs, street artist, random jam sessions by acquaintances!

Like when I was in DC, one of my colleague, a DJ himself, took me to this space for artists, where experienced artist jam with amateurs, a place where amateur artist get the opportunity to learn from the pro. I got to witness a trippy impromptu Jam session, where young people started rapping, and the pro’s tagged along created a beautiful mashup of music out of thin air!

The old jazz club in Paris “Le Caveau de la Huchette”, where they have live concerts every day! Cosy place in the basement of a 16th-century building. Old couple dancing to the music was a treat for eyes.
The music and dance was a delight and a moment of joy.
