It's definitely stumbling across a jazz trio outside of the centre Pompidou after searching the Latin quarter to no avail. I sat with my husband at a coffee shop and had a real living in the moment experience.

So many to choose from but there was one magnificent Jaques Brel tribute concert at the Barbican centre in London that sticks in my memory. Artists from around Europe and beyond paying tribute to a man who sang with so much emotion and passion in a language I don't even understand. Spellbinding! anne@anneg.net

Oh lovely giveaway! I must confess any music presented a Capella with passion just gives me goose bumps and in any language ;)

I'm always mesmerised when I visit France, but being in a basement bar, somewhere in Le Marias in Paris, being serenaded by a older French man on a guitar definitely topped the cake on memorable experiences!
I also love, love the sounds of So Frenchy So Chic compilations - they are divine to listen to on sunday mornings.

while on a weekend away with hubby up in Montville, we heard this amazing voice from across the road at the local pub. She sounded like little birdie and was doing Angus & Julia Stone & Crowded house acoustic covers - it was so amazing we spent the rest of the afternoon there, most relaxing afternoon I've had with hubby in a long time!!

when I was a young woman I sang in a youth choir. We went to Hungary to compete in a choral competition and befriended a Turkish youth choir. We all got on well and discovered a love of soccer was shared by the males in both choirs. So we enjoyed an illicit gam eof international soccer! Illicit because we had to find a soccer field to play on and climb up over chainwire fences and brick walls to get in. But we did it! Can't remember who won though :)

I visited Paris in 2006 and there was a music festival. My Husband and I where doing laundry and there was police and people everywhere. We didn't know what the deal was so we went back to our hotel. Later that night we heard music and looked out our 5th floor window to see a procession of musicians all dressed in white walking through the streets. Also at about 3am that morning there was a riot outside our window. It was a great memorable musical moment :D

Last year's Gypsy Jazz festival at the Powerhouse, Brisbane. Eastern European Gypsy band. Lots of people, lots of brass, so much fun, so much life!

We go to the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival each year - always with an incredible line-up of acts from all over the world and all sorts of music genres. Its fantastic to be able to go a festival and be immersed in musical diversity. Favourite moments that stick to mind include an Aussie crowd rocking out to the sounds from 'Tinariwen' - a group from the Sahara desert and the haunting sounds of 'Gurrumul' - the crowd listened in silence as he sung magical words in his native aboriginal tongue.

My favourite world music experience has not been while travelling OS (since I have never been OS) or anything that exciting. Its a memory that will forever be with me! The music that my old lebanese boss used to play many years ago when I was working as a waitress after school. It was unlike anything I had heard before and helped to shape how I listen to music now.
Good luck to everyone as this sounds like a wonderful prize.
