Just thought it would be nice to have a thread where people post music from non-english speaking countries. 

From my experience I like many of them more than most english ones.

 

So post music from your country or other songs that you like...

I think rap in other languages is very hard to judge, the beat is usually the same as in another 2 million rap songs the only difference is the words and the flow (and flow is hard to judge in another language).

 

Here's some Dutch ska (reggae). Think everyone who's Dutch knows this song, and everyone who isn't probably doesn't:

Love Camille, and she's french so that counts right

 

 

 

Also, Cuba has some of the greatest latin music out there. One of their most iconic group of musicians is ample proof of this.

Mandeville is amazing.

 

 

I'm a fan of large choir pieces. Especially in Latin. With heavy guitar riffs.

 

 

And of course... something to smoke to:

For those of you who have never heard Era, regardless of what language you speak, I highly recommend giving their music a listen...

 

 

Well worth a listen. I know every word even though I don't know what any of it means.

I am brazilian and I must say that brazilians are really patriotic with their music. The only type of music you'll hear here are those who are sang in english or portuguese. Because we're the only ones who speak PT here in the americas you'll never see someone listening to mexican, argentinan or any other spanish song.

 

The pop music in Brazil is currently the "college country" and the carioca funk which I particulary don't like to listen. But still, there's a lot of brazilian bands and musicians that I like. One of my favourites is the band Paralamas do Sucesso. Old band, but still very good. They played at rock in rio in 1985 and I find their performance amazing, altough I dont think the vocals are the best.

 

 

sadly, the vocalist suffered a plane accident in 2001 and now he needs to use a wheelchair, but he's still kicking ass on the guitar.

 

And there's also brazilian rap and hip hop, which is stronger in the São Paulo region with groups like Racionais MC's. But the most known brazilian rapper overseas is clearly the carioca Marcelo D2 which has a lot of great sounds,mixing samba and hip hop, creting a unique and very different sound.

 

Also, unlike popular rappers he doesn't talk about gangbanging, money and b*tches but about family, community or even about politics and social messages.

I think his first solo album "À procura da Batida Perfeita" is still his best album.

 

 

 

Another band I like is Skank (yep, that's their name. Is more of a reference to the dance than the swearing) and they began as reggae/ska band in the 90's but with the course of the years they began to approach a more "pop" sound.

MC Slava - MC Slava's Song (Tomas Diss)

 

It's Lithuanian rap actually but there's still many Russian words. Even the MC is Russian but he has grown up in Lithuania.

this thread is seriously lacking Tinariwen and Bombino.

it's basically sub-Saharan Africa desert music but with electric guitars and it's awesome. I don't understand a word they're saying but I don't need to, something very moving about their sound.

i like "Bengalische Tiger" from Materia but I can't stand most of the rest of his music because of his monotone voice.

 

I am a fan of Kollegah, not because I support the idea tto display over the top arrogance in real life, but simply because he has simply amazing skills, treasury of words, and general education.

 

 

In my teenage years I was listening to Böhse Onkelz most of the time. This is probably my favourite song, especially because of the guitar riff.

 

 

Another artist of which I am a huge fan is Daniel Wirtz.

My youngest is a huge Studio Ghibli fan, especially The Cat Returns. I have no idea what any of the lyrics from this song in the closing credits are, but it's beautiful. Always brings a smile to my face.

It's one of those songs with videos being blocked in different countries for whatever reason.

 

Anyway, it's Tokio Hotel- Übers Ende der Welt

I can see the title, that's why I am happy that it's blocked.

 

The song is not bad musically regarding the instrumental part. But the singer is annoying.

Great topic!

 

In my opinion Hebrew music is the best in the world, along with Greek folk and Spanish flamenco, not to mention classical music (Mozart, Beethoven...).

 

Here I let you a lot of Israeli songs (maybe too many) of all genres and ages. I hope you like them.

 

Some classical songs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA_MRXehb2w

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbqNGN6C1Ng

 

The song Sfirat Milai (I love it!):

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsHzaGwYssU

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTZiYwDAfPI

 

The song Hardufim:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vIdYxCqln8

 

You can also listen to the original version by Shlomo Artzi or the version by Ofir Ben sh*trit at The Voice.

 

The song Hakayitz HaAcharon (very popular at the beginning of the 90s):

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1IjRa2uNr4

 

This is the original version.

 

Tzemed Darom's Sisu Et Yerushalayim:

Well spotted.  :^:

 

It was also sample by 2 Live Crew's "Dick Almighty and Fearless Four's "Rockin' It." One of the most sampled bands ever.

 

You might recognize this melody as well as Coldplay used it.
