Assuming that you listen to music, then what kind of music do you listen to when you write?

Personally I listen only to instrumental music at a low volume. If I work on a website I crank it up higher.

Recently I stumbled across Didula he is one of Russia's most popular musicians who I never heard of before. He is a guitar virtuoso who blends his training in Slavic music with Spanish Flamenco and techno style music leading to an interesting fusion. It tends to be melodic and upbeat and calming music. Nothing that jars the nerves.
Here are a couple of samples:

And his "Greatest hits."

It's gotta be instrumental music, so typically a jazz-based station on Pandora. Hearing words messes up my thought process while writing.
