Today, i’ll talk a bit more about music. My friends usually picture me as a singer of bollywood songs. Sure I am. I still try to listen to each and every song that comes out. But now i’ll delete those that don’t appeal to me on the 1st hit of play. I won’t say, ‘Maybe if i listen to it more, i’ll get to like it.’ I know my tastes now., tastes that have changed during these few years abroad. Bollywood is only part of my library, but i still look for that indian touch in every song. My favourite artists remain A.R. Rahman and Nitin Sawhney, because they are the only composers that have been able to blend indian influences to occidental styles, and have kept doing it consistently, mesmerizing us with every new song.
Now, here’s why i’m actually writing this post. I wanted to share my playlist during my 16 hours of travel from Bordeaux to Mauritius. Here’s the opportunity to appreciate a few albums with shuffle turned off.
I can’t even take a nap in the TGV or the plane. I'll keep my laptop if wifi is available in Paris or for a movie eventually. So if there’s noone interesting beside me to talk to, here's what i'll listen to: music that won’t make me sing but that'll nonetheless activate my facial muscles out of appreciation or in a bid to attain a very low or very high pitch. Music that i’ve had in my library this year but which i never listened to on one go.
Breathing Under Water
Badmarsh & Shri
The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
That should be enough for the trip. In case I manage to refill my ipod, it’ll have the following too.
That’ll be all from Adarsh.
See you in Mauritius as from July 11.
