Best of the Maldives: Underwater Music – Cora Cora

Cora Cora - pool music

Some people are fans of the underground music scene, but Cora Cora, appropriately enough for the Maldives, has an underwater music scene. Specifically, it has installed underwater speakers in its main pool so while you are swimming laps you can listen to “streaming” tunes. Most of the playlist, is classical, but strangely, I didn’t her Handel’s “Water Music”.

It does beg the question of what would be the ideal underwater playlist? I took a look on Spotify for underwater playlists. Many features ambient songs with either babbling brooks, rainfall or whale song. One playlist, “Piano Underwater” had a collection of songs high on reverb and echo giving the pieces an aqueous feel to them. But I was thinking more literally about “underwater”. One set might be songs with an underwater theme, eg. Under da Sea (Little Mermaid), Yellow Submarine, Octopus’s Garden. Or perhaps TV show themes, eg. The Underwater Adventures of Jacques Cousteau, Flipper.

Any suggestions?
