Which country/language do you think creates the best music?

Post your favourite music from languages other than English.

Spanish language music is my favourite. French sounds nice as well.

German, only because I listen to it to help with learning the language (I should probably listen to french too though, but I don't know any!)
Philipp Poisel and Clueso are my favourites :love:

Spanish! My 'Musica Española' playlist on Spotify beats all the others by a mile! I also love Stromae (French) though and Lars Vaular (Norwegian) is reaaally good too.

I think that one's the best, the chorus means "with everyone of your faults, I love you more". It's soo sweet!

Who's your favourite spanish artists?
Well, Spanish music has made me listen to styles I wouldn't usually be interested in in English, such as stuff by artists like Hector Lavoe, Ruben Blades, Carlos Vives, Nach and Piezas y Jayder (all quite different to each other too) but I also like a lot of the mainstream music e.g. Jarabe de Palo, Maldita Nerea, Malu, Nelly Furtado, David Bisbal etc.
Atm my favourite is probably Nach...:love: The song 'Si yo fuera' (ft. Angela Cervantes) has been played about 100 times this week. And by Piezas y Jayder I would recommend Geminis and Dominando la Colera. These two are definitely not 'traditional' artists whose type of music is the first thing you'd think of when you hear 'Spanish music', but really good and the lyrics are really helpful for vocabulary learning and improving listening skills (because they talk so bloody fast)

Are we talking about which languages sound best in songs or which countries produce the best music?

If it's the former then my vote goes to variants on Nordic languages and Sami.

A bit of Sami/ancient finnish:
I think it's sami anyway, I'm pretty sure it's not modern finnish as that wasn't really the Shaman way.

And some Norwegian (I assume Nyorsk but I don't know as I can't understand a word of it! Perhaps someone who can actually speak norwegian can enlighten me?):

Aaaww I hope loads of people listen to that, they ought to be sooo much more popular than they are. Loads of their good ones aren't even on YouTube for some reason
I hadn't heard Alejando Sanz before, Amiga Mia is really nice! And I like Con La Mano Lavanta. Have you heard Gitana by Shakira? I loveeee it, sooo much better than the English version...there is sooo much Spanish music about Los Gitanos, it's a bit weird, I'm not sure it would go down so well in English!

I'm listening to a lot of their stuff now. I'm surprised I haven't heard of them before.
Yeah I've heard Gitana. A lot of the girls in my spanish class seem to be obsessed with gypsies for some reason so they have are constantly playing it

I like when english speaking artists sing in spanish as well.
