Last year around this time I put together a mixtape and encouraged others to make their own playlists so we could discover new music together.
I just put together this year’s list on grooveshark. For your listening pleasure, click here!

Love this – chilled and active, flow and passion, harmony and heart. Such a sweet and thoughtful share Venessa – thank you so much.
I’m also enjoying Kirtan chants (Deva Premal, the Mayapuris) helps me transcend and meditate; have been revisiting Armeno (Era) and opera (Pavarotti) for the sheer exhilaration of sound. And everything else from Bach to dubstep mixes. Music is such a soundtrack of life – it’s so good to look back and be able to access it all and share too.
