Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love listening to foreign languages as well...A lot of my friends don't understand why I like it, but you don't have to understand the lyrics to enjoy the music.

I'd have say that French is my favorite, but I also love German, Japanese and Italian. I've lost track of how many I've heard though

There's just something incredibly beautiful about relying more on the actual music and the way that the words are said instead of their meaning. It's more...personal in a way.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love listening to Tania Maria from Brazil. Some of her stuff is English, some is Portuguese, and some I'm convinced is just gibberish. I also like Bellita from Cuba who sings in Spanish. In fact, I know the words to a few of her songs though I don't know what I'm saying.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I absolutely LOVE korean music. For me it is the best kind out there, and I highly recommend it. These are just a few of my favorite songs by Shinee, BEAST, and GD & TOP

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love listening to metal/dark electro/similar genres in German. It just sounds that much better IMO, the language lends itself to that kind of music.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

Everything I listen to is foreign!
I listen to mostly K-Pop and a bit of J-Pop and some C-Pop and T-Pop.
I love JQT, SNSD, BigBang, Dal Shabet, Lee Jung Hyun, Capsule, Perfume (my absolute favourite!), Ayumi Hamasaki, Rurutia, Jolin Tsai, Wanda, Vivi Jiang, Neko Jump, Waii and Kiss Me Five
That's only a few xD

I'm a real fangirl of Perfume! Only problem is buying & shipping CDs (especially Japanese ones) is expensive V,V

I know what you mean about importing Japanese CDs, I've thrown hundreds into it. I see a lot of the 3+ versions of one thing going on there now too which really urks me.



I used to be really into Jpop and Kpop and I still have some songs but it's not to the extreme it was. With Kpop it's a huge hit or miss with me, I'll maybe have 2 songs from G-Dragon, 2NE1, DBSK, etc. I do have Lee Jung Hyun's older stuff. Also, remixes, I probably have more remixes of Kpop then the actual Kpop songs because I like me some electronic music.

Right now I like:
abingdon boys school
T.M.Revolution
Milan Stanković
Dino Merlin
Davor Badrov
Mylne Farmer
Dima Bilan
Max Barskih
Sogdiana
Vintage
... and a bunch of others.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I really enjoy the Putumayo world music collections. A lot of African stuff etc. One of my favorites is the "Gypsy Groove" cd. So much fun And it's really fun to listen to the singing in other languages.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I'm really in love with J-pop and K-pop as well. I don't understand Korean at all (and I'm just on Beginner level in Japanese), but it doesn't stop me. My favorite groups and artists are Morning Musume., Berryz Koubou, S/mileage, AKB48, C-ute, Mano Erina, Utada Hikaru, Matsuura Aya, Girls' Generation, f(x), Super Junior and BoA.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I hate Korean and Japanese music, it annoys me extremely, especially when tons of asian people who don't understand the music listen to it...at that point it's just weird.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love Hindi music...a lot. Most of the music comes from the movies.
I also love J-Pop/Rock and K-Pop.
European music is attractive, too.
I don't think you have to understand it to like it a lot. I like the voices, they way they sing it, the melody, etc. I doubt that if you listen to different languages that you don't know, you'd be listening to it because you understand it.

Hmm...I don't like any modern American bands/singers. I love the ones over in Britain though. I've always loved British bands.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love Japanese music, particularly Dir en grey. There's also X Japan, the GazettE, and alice nine, but Dir en grey has been my favorite band for years.

I've heard a little bit of Tiktak too. They're an all-girl Finnish rock band and they're pretty good as well.

I saw/heard them for the first time at their concert in Utrecht last week. I went to keep a friend company, but it wasn't too bad... I was happy brought earplugs though...man those guys are tiny but loud!

I too enjoy a lot of different languages in my music, but I kind of have a knack for languages so I mostly listen to songs in the languages that I know. It's good practise,especially when you don't get to practise a particular language that you happen to know/worked hard to learn.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love Irish music the best. Although some of the artists I like sing in English, some of them sing in Irish or even do instrumentals that are cool. The Corrs are an example of one who does instrumentals. They have some great ones. I also like Leahy and Enya as well as Celtic Woman. The very first instrumental I heard from The Corrs was "Rebel Heart" and I instantly fell in love with it. It was just so beautiful. I also like "Toss the Feathers" and a few others I can't remember right now.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

Music is such a universal thing that you don't have to 'understand' the song to 'get' the song.

I listen to music in different languages all the time and these songs would definitely lose the charm and the feeling if they were performed in English.
