Default International music (in general)

Hello everybody
I am big fan of music in many languages. As we can see - spanish, german and finnish music have their own threads here. But many other languages are interesting too.

Could you recommend me some non-english bands or singers?


I like these bands:

Iceland - Sigur Rós (post-rock, ambient) - You probably know this band.

Mongolia - Altan Urag (folk-rock, metal little bit) - If you like odd music or Apocalyptica, you may like it too.

Denmark - Valravn (experimental, electronica, folk) - It reminds me Sigur Rós little bit although it's different style.

Poland - Myslovitz (pop-rock)

Japan - Dir En Grey (rock, metal, experimental)


If you want some czech music, I like folk singer Radůza, Jaromír Nohavica, folk band Čechomor, pop-rock singer Anna K. and pop-rock band Lucie.


Do you know something non-english? Please, post it here

Hi Petula07,

I am also a fan of international (world) music. Thanks for sharing some of your favorites!

Below is an old Israeli song, Erev Ba ("Evening Comes"), that I have loved ever since I was five and first danced the accompanying folkdance with candles and a circle of loved-ones. I was able to dance Erev Ba at my wedding also, which was very special for me because many of those loved-ones were still alive and part of the circle. The music is performed by Arieh Levanon. The singers are Shimon Bar and Aliza Kashi Oshik Levi, and various others. The song is from the CD Such A Beautiful Country Track 14, Audio link from the Jewish Music.com website. (EDIT: Oh! I now see you just started an Israeli music thread, so this post could have gone there!)



Lyrics from Hebrewsongs:

EVENING COMES
(Words transliterated by Henry Lederfeind of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Words translated by Aura Levin Lipski of Melbourne, Australia.)

Again the flocks wander
along the village street
and the dust rises
from sandy paths.

And far away the bells
merge with the gathering shadows.

Evening falls, evening falls.

Again the wind whispers
amongst the garden fences
and from the tops of the cypress
the doves coo

And in the distance
the last rays of the sun caress the hilltops
Evening falls, evening falls.

Again the rose dreams
languorous dreams
and gradually on high
the stars begin to twinkle

And afar in the dark valley
the jackal accompanies the approach of night.
Night falls, night falls.


EREV BA (Lyrics by Oded Avishar)

Shuv haeder noher
Bimvo'ot hakfar
Veolech haavak
Mishvilei-afar

Veharchek od tzemed inbalim
Melave et meshech batz'lalim

Erev ba, erev ba.....

Shuv haruach lochesh
Bein gidrot ganim
Uvtzameret habrosh
Kvar namot yonim

Veharchek al ketef hagvaot
Od noshkot, karnaim achronot
Erev ba, erev ba...

Shuv havered cholem
Chalomot balat
Uforchim kochavim
Bamaron at at

Veharchek, baemek ha'afel
Melave hatan et bo baleil
Layil rad, layil rad...

Unfortunately, "Erev Ba" is the only Israeli song I knew before reading your two threads...besides "Hava Nagila," that is. I'll check out your international videos, Petula07! It's nice that you've collected them all together.

Yes, I collect international songs, now I found more hebrew music, two bands which seems to be interesting. But now I am too busy for something new to check it, I will do it later.

Oh yes, I know "Hava Nagila", we sang it in music camp 8 years ago, it was a lot of fun

I forgot to mention two well-known Italians: Andrea Bocelli (opera, pop) and Adriano Celentano (rock, pop, and he's an actor too).

Also, Toto Cutugno, best known for his hit L'Italiano (1983):

They are really well-known But nice, thank you.

Here are my two favourite songs by Valravn. Maybe too experimental or electronic for somebody...
