I am inherently a very private person. Talking about what i am thinking or feeling is extremely difficult for me. I believe i am a good listener. I can sit and listen to others for hours in fact i encourage others to talk to me. I love it when somebody can talk to me about whats on their mind, I love it when somebody argues with me about whats on their mind, the insight and passion and the perspective that each person brings to situations which are probably an everyday occurrence fascinates me. But when it come to me doing it …. i always hesitate 🙂

As a result i am a hesitant blogger. I find it difficult to write about things which are private and considering my temperament pretty much everything is private 😉

Here is where i make an attempt to try and come out of my shell.

Buddha Bar

I love my music.

I listen to pretty much anything and everything. In fact i would be hard pressed to classify any kind of music if i was asked to 🙂

The Buddha Bar Series has got to be in the top 5 of my all time favourites. The Albums are a compilation of songs by artists from all around the world. And they really are from all around the world. The albums are always 2 CD’s One is usually easy lounge accompaniment for say a Dinner while the other is a more peppy, beat-filled disc with songs more suited to foot tapping or even dancing. The albums are compilations by the resident DJ’s which have been Claude Challe, DJ Ravin, David Visan and Sam Popat.

What holds my attention is the sheer variety of music. I definitely can’t fathom the lyrics for most of the songs as My linguistic abilities are limited to 3 languages at best and maybe understanding a smattering of a few others.

The music is captivating, the variety is great and although i hear a few people saying that the music is getting repetitive i personally don’t think so.

For those of you who want to give it a go here’s a few tracks from the series, (links play in
