Music from different cultures + languages

Does anyone like listening to music from different cultures and sometimes in different languages? Even if you have absolutely no idea what it's saying, and you just think it sounds good. Or if you like listening to instrumental music? Discuss!

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

As for foreign language I really love Rammstein even though I have zero idea what they're saying (I did look up translations but wish I hadn't )
Industrial I like Apocolyptica. They do have some guest singers on some of their songs but most of them are purely instrumental.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

It kind of bothers me when i cant figure out what theyre talking about. For example, my aunt does business, so she travels a lot and knows a lot of languages. Once she let me listen to her ipod, and all her songs were in all these different languages. At first i was awed and thought it was cool, but that wore off after a few minutes

As for instrumental, i love that from all cultures, it just sounds really cool with the different instruments and that kind of thing

I was told that I wouldn't like the translations so that's why i haven't looked them up - I like the music too much & don't want to be turned off them!

I do like some music from other cultures, I've heard some Indian music that I loved and even some Native American music too that I enjoyed

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love the Numa Numa song, by O-zone (ok, fine, I don't know the actual name of the song...) and I recently downloaded some songs from the movie "Everything is Illuminated," which are mostly in Russian/Ukrainian. My ex-Spanish teacher also introduced me to some fun music by Manu Chao, which is mostly in Spanish and French, so I can sort of understand it. Oh, and Gogol Bordello, which is like gypsy-punk and I think in Russian/Ukrainian as well.
Other than that, I listen to music from either the U.S. or U.K.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

After taking Spanish in school for 5 years, we listened to a lot of Spanish music, and I still feel like I don't understand anything they're saying but I like listening to it

See I understand what they sing and hence don't like them.

But I like German music in general not much.

Spanish (although I understand nothing) I like best.
Japanese is also good, for example AKFG.

I liked O-Zone, but actually I found "Despre Tine" better.
All in all do I like Romanian music.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I have a lot of music in French from various people. I can understand a bit of it but not really well. I usually look up the lyrics to songs I have in other languages just so I can remember the basic idea of what's being sung when I listen.

I have a couple of songs in Spanish, German, Latin, and a few in random African languages, but not too much. Most of the foreign language stuff I have is choral music actually (thus the Latin), though some of my French stuff is pop-ish. There's just a lot more good choral music in Latin and French.

Lots of music lyrics are stupid anyway, so I think not understanding the words wound improve some songs They say that everything too stupid to be said is sung. Not always of course, especially in some genres, but anyway--yes I like a lot music in other languages.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

My favourite foreign language artist (and I don't include Enlish in this) is Johnny Clegg from South Africa. His most successful song must have been "Scatterlings of Africa" from the Rain Man soundtrack. His songs are awesome, they have the right mix of rock/pop/ethnic. He sings in English, Swaheli (sp?), sometimes even French and Africaans. I already turned several people on with his music because it is so powerful and beautiful.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I`m a girl who is mixed with Chinese, Vietnamese, Native American and Irish and I listen to both C-Pop and Vietnamese music, except for Native American and Irish music since I'm not familiar with it. =P

But I believe what I stated above is completely unrelated to this forums question... XD;;

I listen to J-Pop sometimes though. =)

ILoveHARRY_, can you recommend any Vietnamese music (preferably some that can be purchased on iTunes)? I've been to Vietnam last year, and I really loved it, I would love to have some good music to remind me of my trip there.
I love listening to Irish Pub music, makes me want to sing and drink beer. My brother says it wants him to go hang at the Prancing Pony .

And yeah, what is C and J Pop?

I don't care what language a song is in, if I like the way it sounds I'll listen to it. I seem to prefer music from Europe and Asia since I have more music in non-English languages and most English music I do have is from Europe.

The downside is it's harder to buy the music, usually I can't find what I like in CD stores.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I love music in other languages besides English! I think I have more of this music on my Napster than I do English.

I'm really into German music, (although as Tenshi mentioned, I understand Rammstein as well, and dont really appreciate their music too much) Spnaish music (from both Spain and Latin America), and Thai music. I can understand all the German and most Spanish, but I know almost no Thai, so I dont understand the songs, but they still have a good sound and beat. Some Chinese and Japanese are really good as well.

Some of my favorite artists include Loona, Seeed, Lafee, DJ Oetzi, Marquess, Silly Fools, Zeal, Loso, Los Rieleros, Juanes, David Bisbal Die Aerzte, and actually many more.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I really like Manu Chao and some songs by Juanes. I also I like Chinese film music a lot and Japanese anime music.

Re: Music from different cultures + languages

I like spanish music. Like regaton stuff. There's this band called RBD that's awsome. I understand some of it cause I've read a lot of lyrics translated into english, but I don't speak spanish I only sing what I memorise. You all really got it check this out it's the Snape chicken dance

Ahaha, same here. I actually can't listen to some of them anymore because of that. Mein Herz Brennt hasn't been ruined for me though, I still love it.

I love a lot of artists from different countries/languages. One of my top favourite bands is called Kent, who sing in both English and Swedish (and in one song, they have a part in french, from which I got the lyrics in my sig).

I also love listening to French bands, like Air and Les Cowboys Fringant and Phoenix (even though Phoenix sings in English, haha).

I also adore Sigur Ros, who are Icelandic. My Icelandic friend translated some of the lyrics for me and they're really beautiful (Hoppipolla makes me smile).

Another great band I love is DeVotchka, and although they're from the US, their music has a very Romani, slavic feel to it. Really beautiful stuff.
