For going to Onde you need to possess three qualities: curiosity, passion and relaxation.
Onde is a shop for “music addicted persons”, it has an old fashioned style, and…yes! It still sells CDs, true CDs, not iTunes gift cards. If you decide to go to Onde you have to know that you need to take the time to choose from a “million” CD offers. You can find CDs from jazz manouche to Irish traditional music, Balkan, Hindi, electro jazz, glitch, indie, Turkish rock…and so on and so forth.
Elisabetta and Renzo (the owners) speak very good English, you can have a chat with them, they can suggest something to listen to and when you’ve decided they will put it on the CD player for you. It’s definitely not possible to leave Onde without a CD.
I’ve been going there since I was in high school, they taught me to listen to music and appreciate different sounds from different countries. I highly suggest this spot, it is small and intimate and sometimes if you go on Saturday they also have small concerts in front of the shop.
Have a good listen!
