AMOGH RAO P L AY L I S T S T O HIGHLIGHT YOUR TRAVELS People looking for a blend between lush nature and the calm of solace always seek the sites of the south. The songs to accompany you in these lands must reflect that musical quiet, and the happiness that it invokes. A lot of pairs in nature come instinctively, and one of the most impactful is music and travel. Everyone knows the graphic universe you’re transported to the moment you plug your ears with music while on the road. And like cheese and wine, some combinations turn out to be ecstatically life changing. Apart from just amplifying an experience, songs tend to bind themselves to these experiences making them immensely more cherishable. So what we’ve done here is compiled a bunch of artists from varied genres to give you a wholesome understanding of the places they go so well with. Since these playlists are based on opinions of people, they’re subjective, but would definitely make for a memorable trip the next time you visit these places. Himachal and the far North If you’re in for the trekking, village hopping and minus temperature vibes, you’ve got to have some out-of-the- box yet digestible tracks to accompany you. This playlist blends songs that are heavy on the feels and those that are basically fun-loving genius jams since a couple of math rock bands can’t do complete justice to this region. The hippie, nomadic and chill sounds are exemplified by Motopony, Tame Impala, Daughter and Benjamin Francis Leftwich. The cold weather and atmosphere in general is pleasingly countered with a rush by the heavily melodic and voluminous compositions by Plini, Devin Townsend and Scale The Summit. 22 The Score Magazine highonscore.com To cover the central range of sonic spectrum, math rock bands like Totorro, Elephant Gym and alt rock geniuses like Birds of Tokyo help boast a playlist worthy of your adventures.
