At just 17 years of age, Choongum has a lot of time ahead of him to blaze a rather eclectic career trail. We have already heard a slew of influences in his many projects, and now we get a chance to peep some of the music this kid incorporates in his daily listening routine. While you would normally expect a typical high-schooler to be bumping some Katy Perry, Choongum mixes in some international rarities like Le Likembé Geant and Django Reinhardt, as well as some throwback classics like Santana and Marvin Gaye.
