Karaoke Night in Medellin ‘s Best Hostel

Karaoke Night!!!!
Every second Thursday my local hangout, The Wandering Paisa, hosts a huge Karaoke night in Medellin.  It’s a huge party, and probably 3/4 of the people who attend are Paisas.  Everyone gets right into it, and it’s always a great time.  This time was no exception.


The above picture is me with a fellow flatlander, and I’m sure a future Albertan, Bryan.  I mean what Saskatchewanite (people from a flat province in Canada who all wear green, apparently Bryan is preparing for his move, since he doesn’t have his Sask suit on) doesn’t eventually end up in Alberta, or apparently Medellin.


Here’s Bryan again, who hasn’t cut his Canadian winter shag yet.  With rocker hair like that, you’d think he’d have sung.  You’d have thought wrong.  I guess he’s too busy getting to know the Paisas.  Understandable.  We’ll forgive our future Albertan for now.


Yours truly rocking it out with my good friend Jeremy.  Love Jer’s gigantic smile in this pic.  We put on quite the rendition of “Paint it Black”.  Which, by the way is a truly great karaoke song.  Thanks for helping me out Jer!



Miles Knowles, half of the Knowles brother team who owns and operates The Wandering Paisa.  Awesome guy, which might explain why his hostel is so kick ass and rocking.  Keep it up Miles!



Local friends.  Tess and Keshia got right into the action.  They brought the majority of the Spanish songs to the table.  Yours truly broke out a song in Spanish the previous Karaoke, but didn’t have the pelotas this time around to give it a go.  In case you’re wondering, which you’re probably not, the song I sang was Musica Ligera, by Soda Stero.  Here’s a link to YouTube if you want to hear more from this great Argentinean band. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpiY999wHTM

Jeremy singing a song by Eddie Vedder, surprising not “Jeremy”.

The night ended with two fantastic Karaoke songs: “Bohemian Rhapsody”, in which I worked up a sweat rocking too, and “Don’t Stop Believing”.  I don’t think there was a person in the place who wasn’t singing at the top of their lungs (or else I was just couldn’t hear the fact that they weren’t because of my own singing.)  Either way, I had fun being Freddie Mercury, Mick Jagger, and Eddie Vedder for a night.
