Music Genres You Should Combine with Your Meals

posted in: Blog, Music Genres | 0

A study was done to see how people react when they listen to certain types of music while eating. The researcher found some interesting results. This is obviously a general suggestion, but it can’t hurt to try it out. If you are hardcore all the way or indie all the way, by all means, keep at it. We share these interesting findings because, well, it’s interesting.

You should play Indie music when eating Indian food – Indie rock music is your best option when eating Indian. The faster beats help to bring out the spiciness of Indian cuisine and make you enjoy that meal so much more.

Dessert deserves some R&B. The researcher found that R&B is best to go with that delicious molten lava cake or that mouth-watering crème brulé or even just a nice bowl of ice cream and chocolate sauce. Just imagine that soulful sounds and singing accompanying your taste buds’ delicious journey through your dessert.

Sushi likes jazz music. Jazz music is the perfect genre to eat your salmon sushi, California rolls, and fashion sandwiches to. It is chilled and mellow and will make your dining experience so much better. Try it out.

Try some pop music when you eat Chinese food. Whether it is K-pop or other types of pop music, it goes best with Chinese food. You will enjoy your sweet and sour pork or chicken chow mein so much more when accompanied with some pop beats. We suggest mixing it up with as many styles and languages you can find. It seems fitting to try some K-pop and Chinese pop while enjoying some Eastern cuisine.

You should eat breakfast while listening to soul music. Start your day with some smooth soul sounds to set the mood for a great and positive day. Soul music is perfect to enjoy your breakfast by and to get you in the right state of mind for your day ahead.

These seem legit, but we suggest you try it yourself. Maybe do some music and food matching research of your own. Let us know what you find.

The Benefits of Live Music in Restaurants and Coffee Shops

When you visit a restaurant, you may not even notice that there is probably music playing in the background. There is psychology behind the playing of music in restaurants and coffee shops. It creates a good vibe and puts people at ease. Live music has some specific benefits. Yes, there are people who don’t enjoy live music, but they generally tend to stay away from places where this is the norm. Live music is great for both the clientele and the business. Here’s why:

1. It creates a positive and uplifting atmosphere. People go out to relax and forget about their jobs and long days. Live music helps to create the best environment to do this. It relaxes you, gets some beat into your body and releases happy hormones.

2. It takes people on a journey. Music has the power to take you on a journey to unknown and beautiful places. Music can completely transport you to another time and place where everything is beautiful, peaceful, and romantic. Or where everything is a big party and lots of fun. Either way, music is ideal for an evening getaway when a holiday is out of the question.

3. It creates a social vibe. Music can help clientele mingle and meet new people. It tends to create an atmosphere of familiarity and freedom. When people are relaxed and don’t feel threatened or judged, they are more likely to talk to new people and possibly make life-long friends.

4. Live music helps people escape. There is no better escape than just letting go and emerging yourself in the music. After a long day or a crappy experience, the best remedy is good food and some live music to take you away.

Live music draws more clientele who are looking for a fun or relaxing night out. This combined with all of the benefits mentioned above makes it a winning choice for any coffee shop or restaurant.
