Re: Music in Cafes
- Hi Martin and Martanda,
In our vegetarian restaurant/cafe here in Wellington, New Zealand,
we have gone through many phases in music over the last few years.
For a while it was all Shindhu, who with a good 6-7 albums to their
name will certainly last a while, and customers have responded
positively and even at times purchased copies of the music.
Alap has always been a favourite, and of course don't forget the
music of Sri Chinmoy himself, whose haunting, soulful flute music
often draws favourable comments from outwardly and inwardly hungry
For those who will spare no expense with their music, may I
recommend an Apple iPod connected to the enterprise sound system?
The latest model, now with 12 hours battery life, and loaded with
all of the inspiring groups you list below, often gets us through
the day without repeating a single song!
