What would a roadtrip be without music?
Music is connected with emotions. Moments stay in mind when they are connected with music or special songs. Music can change a long nerve-wrecking drive into a wonderful experience or even into a little van party.
As many travelers have, also we have a playlist with our favorite songs to listen to while traveling. Some of them are for relaxing times, others for good mood during a long drive and others just reminds us of special situations.

GERMAN SALTWATER FOLK
Musically our friend Jules accompanied almost all our journeys - whether in form of his former band Manau Loa or the new one with the "Deepsea Orchestra". Inspired by the sea it is our special roadtrip music for every situation.

SWEDISH ACOUSTIC GET-LOST SOUND
The songs of Jonah Lake are inspired by traveling, roadtrips and the feeling of freedom. His music reflects completely our recent situation. Really nice acoustic music with travel lyrics to listen to during long drives through nature to free your mind.

"I ain't got no shower, I got the ocean blue"
(Living in a van)
MULTICULTURAL GOOD-MOOD MUSIC
For us one of the best bands, not least due to the multicultural influence. It always changes bad mood into good mood and turns a boring drive into a party with dancing and singing. Good no one hears Marlena singing the arabic lyrics.

"Stars are singing songs of no return"
(Grotta della ninfe)
BEAT MAKING AND TAPE SPLICING
Especially his album "Dog with a rope" accompanies us through our last journeys. The new-mixed columbian folk songs transfer the love and simplicity of life which let us always be in a good mood.

(Cumbia sobre el mar)
CANADIAN FOLK ROCK
Since years one of Marlena's favorite bands - therefore we could not imagine to do a roadtrip without "Current Swell" music. Every album is different, so we could listen to the music everyday in every situation with every mood.

"Living on the beach and eating fish everyday"
(Young and able)
When listening to Donovan Frankenreiter, especially to the song "Start livin'", it's time for our coffee party. Dancing, singing and celebrating life while waiting for the coffee to be ready.
