I’m not sure whether it was my new status as a “backpacker” or just the chilled out vibes of various beach bars across Asia but my taste in music has changed a lot over the last two years, hopefully for the better… Gone is the One Direction and Taylor Swift (okay not all of the Taylor Swift!) and it has been replaced by the saxophone filled tunes of Klingande, Bakermat and Androma.
There is nothing better than soaking up the sun in bars such as this in Vang Vieng in Laos, where the seats are rubber rings floating in the water, listening to Androma – Anapo or Naxxos – New Orleans.
Other favourites on the playlist that accompanied me throughout Asia include:
- DIMMI – Promesses
- Bakermat – Brighter Days
- John Legend – All of Me (De Hofnar Bootleg remix)
- Klingande – Punga
- Klingande – Riva
- Faul – Happy Endings
- Bakermat – Teach Me
