Travel Playlist

TokyoMusicMusic serves different purposes for different people – it can be entertaining, inspiring, distracting, comforting and much more. For me, music adds a soundtrack to my travel experiences – it makes me feel more connected to a culture or community. Whenever possible while traveling, I like to experience some sort of local music, whether that be observing a street performance, learning about how music is incorporated into an area’s culture or just taking time to stop and listen to the sounds of nature around me. I also like to have familiar songs with me for times when I want to feel a little bit of home. It may seem a bit of an odd mix of songs, but below is my travel playlist:
