The world is a wonderful place, with history and culture around every corner just waiting to be discovered. Many of these things are highlighted by music, and you will often find that a country will tell its story by way of songs. Whether you are enjoying reggae in the Caribbean or rock and roll in the USA, there is a lesson in history and culture to be enjoyed. If you enjoy music travels, there are some great destinations around the world that are well worth a visit. Read on to see if any of these suit your musical tastes.
Cabaret in Germany
Germany is a country with a great history and, although it might not all be too popular, Berlin Cabaret is one of the best in the world. Starting in the 1920s cabaret in Germany was a bit more serious and atmospheric than what was coming out of France. Focusing on satire, politics and the terrible aspects of war the old cabaret was something very different. These days things have changed and, whilst it is still certainly edgy, there are far more cheesy highlights from long legged and high kicking ladies. If you think that art is important then this place will be exactly what you are looking for.
Classical Music in Vienna
Vienna and classical music travels (or as the Danes say musikrejser) are joined at the hip and the number of world famous composers that chose to live and create music in the city is simply outstanding. Everybody has heard of Beethoven and Mozart who were as big as they come in the classical music arena, then there are others such as Strauss, Schubert and Brahms and the list doesn’t end there. That is why if you enjoy classical music travels then there really is only one choice to experience them at their best.Vienna celebrates classical music like nowhere else so head to the city between September and June when there are a huge amount of concerts to enjoy.
Country Music in Nashville
Visit Grand Ole Opry and the USA and be a part of history in the making. Every Saturday night the longest continuous radio show in the country is broadcast live from here and you can get tickets to see the production. Being in Nashville it is no surprise that this is a Country music event and as it has been running for over 80 years it is certainly a success. So if Johnny Cash and Hank Williams are your thing then book yourself a ticket to the 4400 seat venue and join in the fun.
Latin Music in Cuba
If you have seen the documentary Buena Vista Social Club then you will be more than aware of the music scene in Havana and everything that it stands for. The music is pretty much a celebration of when times were better and that is exactly what you will get when you visit Havana. The party atmosphere has been well documented; however, you really have to experience it to believe it and the best way to do that is by going on music travels. Watch a multitude of dancers from a balcony whilst sipping a cocktail and listening to anything from Rumba to Latin jazz.
