It means living room, sofa, atrium, in one word, lounge.
The term comes from the sixties, where the music was used as background atmosphere in the hotels or in sophisticated cafes. The exotic touch of lounge music was a special mix of jazz, r&b and soul, until the digital revolution which adds the original sounds of ambient. Relax and enjoyment are the perfect sensation generated from lounge music. Just close your eyes for a second, think of gold beaches, the sound of the waves in the ocean, maybe a red-passion cocktail in your hand. Easy ah? Well this is the power of lounge music, which has the pleasure to put you in the place of your dream, just listen to it.
In the years lounge also became the word to say “relax“, “have a rest“, verbs or adjective this is what it means.
