Top 10 Countries With the Best Singers and Bands

The Top Ten
1 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Obviously, Filipinos are known for bananas, mango, food delicacies, and Islands. However, Filipinos are also good at singing that you can found it everywhere. Filipinos barely use auto tunes. You can try it and you can ask someone for them to sing something to you and it's really great. I swear. But because of their economics or whatever it called, their talents for singing is not well-known around the world. Also some of them are too shy or they do not know what a great talent they had. They keep looking down to them selves but not all of them. They were still Filipinos who showing their great talents not only in their country but also to the world. I really have many things to say about their singing but I hope it helps.

As a filipino, I really appreciate these comments. Ever since I was a child, I really love music and such. Around 4th grade I participated to join a choir contest... Well one day we managed to win the division level, and moved on to the regionals. I was also chosen as the descant singer for the choir. But at the day of the contest we didn't win. But that doesn't mean I lost my talent, I still have it with me, but I'm just too shy to let it out since I'm afraid of being judged... But I hope this will inspire my other fellow Filipinos out there.

Filipinos admire Americans because Hollywood is the most popular singing industry in the world and that's a fact. Americans are indeed great singers but why do they have to be racist(not all of them though) but sometimes life plays tricks to everyone, sometimes we're up sometimes we're not.

I admire those Americans and other nationalities who voted for the Philippines. Every country has its best and worst singers though. Filipinos are lucky because they grow up listening to music and learn from it. Americans are also lucky because they've got the most popular singers. Spread love

Anywhere in the world has a good singers but I must say 90% of the Filipinos can really sing even without a proper training. And I admit I belong to 10% who can't sing well.

2 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

I can hear on social media their voices they're so amazing I having a goose bumps. Every time I heard american voices o think they're the best singer because they're so many that I can see on social media I'm impressed (well I'm saying all americans)

I find the comments down below very offensive... not to mention they probrably came from snobby teenage jerks! I'm Filipino and to be honest, most of the times I even think American vocalists are better than some of our singers... the Philippines is the place of culture and fun for the truth! When I searched up, "what is the most top country at singing," I was utterly suprized that Philippines was at the top! I thought USA was going to be at the top and Philippines no where NEAR the top 10! WE are the country of fun and outgoing people, who have real faith... thanks a lot for being racist!.-.

Why filipinos bashing on America when 90% of your singer are imitates American singing style, you don't have your own unique singing style like these Asian nation for example ( Arabic, Malaysian, Chinese, Indonesian, indian, Vietnamese, mongolian etc. ) also most of song your people sing and listen are American song.
also is there any famous Filipino band overseas? nope.

Filipinos are insecure American wannabe

Well the USA beats everyone when it come to female singers - I mean theres Beyonce, lady gaga, christina aguilera, Britney spears and janet jackson.

3 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is more.

QUEEN! That's all that needs to be said... The greatest band on the planet... EVER! Most talented, most awesome, most eclectic, and absolutely the most phenomenal band ever to grace the Earth! Ever! QUEEN will always be the very BEST! They sound totally new, fresh, relevant, and oh so Timeless! Never old / stale / dated or boring like a lot of others. Every song is so different from any other. No 2 sound even similar. They're so completely diverse, from the intensity of Stone Cold Crazy and Dead On Time to the loveliness of Love Of My Life and Save Me, there is something for everyone. QUEEN is truly jaw-dropping AWESOME, w/ 4 of the most talented musical geniuses ever, symbiotically weaving their brilliance in a treasure trove of sheer ecstasy!

Let's be honest, most people from the USA are controversial Pop artits (intentional pun) who can't sing more than a few lines, or who can't write a song of more than a few lines.

Of course, you can't miss out on the greater bands or artists like Michael Jackson, but they only make up 5% of the American artists; compare that to the large majority of hard-working and well-singing English artists.

Only 3 examples is all you can say about British bands?
this country has many bands: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Who, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, definitely Leppard, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Oasis, Dire Straits, Arctic Monkeys, Bring Me the Horizon, Radiohead...

My favorite is Dire Straits. I just can't stop listening to it. And just think bout the Beatles, Oasis, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd etc. But just listen to Dire Straits and all your worries are gone!

4 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, more.

Canada should be after the United States. Canadian singers Rock! There are so many:
Shaina twain
Avril lavigne
Victoria Duffield
Alyssa Reid

Justin Bieber is from Canada and his songs drive people crazy

5 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

We have Avicci, Robin,Abba and we have won the eurovision song contest 6 times and were the most beautiful people walking this earth...

PewDiePie. Okay? We have the most best singers.

6 Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Well AC/DC over 90 million albums sold. The Bee Gees over 80 million albums sold, Olivia Newton John 30 million albums sold. These 3 artists started there recording career in Australia. But other Australian music exports INXS, The Little River Band, Kylie Minogue, Men At Work have all sold over 20 million albums world wide... Some more Silverchair over 10 million albums sold, John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes ( solo ) & Cold Chisel "combined "and country singer Slim Dusty over 6 million album that all good for a country of 24 million people

Ah yes! Australia has really good singers there too!

I love sia!

Australia should be at the top 4

Kylie Minogue is the best!

7 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

I am surprised this is not first. After all most classical composers came from Germany. Besides they have a nice, strong voice filled with accent

Voice kids Germany. That's all

They are strong singers

It is the first place

8 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.

Finland has to be in the TOP 10! - Apocalyptica, Finntroll, Korpiklaani, Negative, Children Of Bodom, Hanoi Rocks, Nightwish...

9 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

As far as French bands go, well, pretty much everyone's familiar with the likes of Daft Punk and Air and Justice (whose new album is out this week). But that's not all there is to French music, y'know. The country has given rise to a number of fascinating musical movements over the years, from the modern chanson of the 1960s through the coldwave of the 1980s (check out this excellent compilation if that genre interests you, by the way) and the more recent explosion of French dance music.

Carmen opera from the French composer Bizet, is the most played in the world.
From Bizet to Daft punk passing by Edith Piaf and the French RAP (2nd in the world behind USA), France should be higher.

Daft Punk...
Best in Europe for RnB, RAP, soul, rock, beat, rock psyche, garage rock, pub rock, mod revival, underground mus.

France Have the best singers!

10 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard. more.

Norwegians have the most beautiful voices in the world. Their voices sound even better when they sing.

Norway should be higher. It has really great singers and bands.

The Contenders
11 Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Western Europe bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. A small and densely populated country, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 square miles) and has a population of more than 11 million.
12 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. more.

I don't understand why New Zealand is so far down when it rightfully should be up there at the top. Most people in NZ can sing and that's no exaggeration. The Maori culture has a big music influence. There's not a soul in NZ who doesn't know at least 2 people in their own family that can sing

New Zealand has so many great country singers and songwriters, like Lorde and Brooke Fraser. Most people in NZ write their own songs, or sing great songs in new ways

NZ singers are amazing! Such soulful tunes, I'm glad it's at 8th, but we need it higher!

13 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

Being an Indian , I can proudly say that India is having tons of musical artists who can rock the world . Plus Music has a place of primacy in Indian culture: in traditional aesthetics, music is often allegorized as 'the food of the soul'. It symbolizes India's remarkable diversity in cultural, linguistic and religious terms and embodies the historical tides that have shaped its contemporary pluralism.

This is such a talented country. But most of the singers are restricted to India. But they are very talented and hard-working. One of the main barriers for them is that most of the Indian songs are in local languages after all. So it's very unlikely that they would make it up to international borders.

Indian Classical music is the best in the world. Even some from the West comes to learn Indian music. No other country has music which is as soothing as Carnatic and Hindustani music. As a learner of Carnatic music and as a one who has listened Western music too, I proudly say that our music is far ahead. But, it often goes underrated. Many Indians are blindly following the West. Even many Indian songs now are composed in Western scales which is not good. Our music is our identity. Punjabi music, Hindustani music and Carnatic music must be the top three.

Hindustani classicals and promising musicians like Armaan Malik, A.R. Rahman, Salim-Sulaiman can explain it better than me.

14 Senegal Senegal (French: Sénégal), officially the Republic of Senegal (French: République du Sénéga), is a country in West Africa . Senegal is bordered by Mauritania in the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast, and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest . more.
15 Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.
16 Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. Scotland is the most mountainous, and least densely populated country in the United Kingdom.
17 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. About 25 million people, around half of the country's population of 51 million, live in the Seoul Capital Area.

This is so biased. Who the hell did this research! I disagree with South Korea being 20th. There are so many more strong singers in South Korea than even America OR UK, but as most of South Koreans don't sing in English and the fact that South Korean music isn't marketed globally, you can't really benchmark Korean music. What the West is exposed to is a tip of the iceberg. Even some of the world's best musicians are South Korea. South Koreans are extremely tenacious and don't settle for mediocre as a nation. There is so much competition and don't keep up with producing music regularly you just don't make it in South Korea. Hence most of Korean artists study music and singing and are way better than Americans who don't know technique. Phillipianions I do believe probablly have natural talent but here again, its because they sing English songs. I have watched singing competitions and how many are really good in America and UK. You can really count on your fingers Watch South Korean ...more

Some amazing singers are from Korea, search up Ailee, Hyorin and Eunji. There are so many that no one knows about. Even though some people say that they are all girl or guy groups, there are still amazing and talented singers. Of course, some get into the group with only looks but look at Winner or Big Bang. In both groups, they actually compose and write their own songs.

When talking about voices, I believe Koreans have the best singing voices and it's as if 80% Koreans can sing. It's crazy. I personally don't like Korean music like how every else in the world does, but they sure as hell can sing! Phillipinos shouldn't be on top of the list. Sure some of them can sing but their music sucks. And not all of em can sing.

They have the best singing shows and has the best music industries in ASIA. Definitely the best in Asia for music. Artists from America come out and collaborate on these South Korean music shows.

18 Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun. Lebanon is situated in the middle of the fertile crescent on the eastern Mediterranean sea overlooking Europe, North Africa more.

Lebanese singers have great talent and vice they can also speak fluently in three languages, best singers are like Elisa, Nancy Ajram, and Maryam faris.

Mika is the best

19 Netherlands

We have the best dj's who are known world wide and a lot of the shows the have in other countries begun in the netherlands example: voice of...

Just watch the voice of holland and you'll understand!

20 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

U2, Enya, The Dubliners, The Pogues, Ronan Keating and so on.

Ireland has in my opinion the best artists.

Niall Horan, take note...

Ireland singers has different voice compared to how they sing if you get what I'm saying

The best by far

21 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are more.

Pakistani Qawali singers are indeed someone who wo't let you down. I'd suggest you to listen to Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Atif Aslam, Umar Farooq, Asim Azhar, Momina Muhtehsan and more others

Are you kidding Pakistani singers are actually the best, I don't like being bias because I haven't checked out some of the countries that are top on here but in this case Its Pakistan that's underrated. NFAK would have performances where English people would go to see even! And we need more of that today because Pakistani classic music is the best. And they are just killing it in every genre of music if I'm honest but sometimes there's such low exposure well, because its Pakistan. And that's sad.

This is true. Bands were popular during the 90s and around that period Pakistan pop scene was flourishing. At present I think looking at everything Pakistan has to offer they have definitely made their mark and done justice to music that Pakistan always excelled in. Bands are very much alive in Pakistan. I wish the world could give Pakistan a chance of listening to their music too

No Pakistani singer is the same, each has own singing abilities but every one of them are bloody great at what they do. Pakistani music in general is one of the best in the world when you look past language difference, its amazing.

22 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

Cory In The House is my favourite anime.

Just think of great bands like L'arc en Ciel or X Japan��"that's just the cherry on the top! There are lots of great artists in Japan and they can perform without autotune (mostly anyways lol). And not all good Japanese music is in animes, in fact anisongs can't be compared to the real thing. Anyways, better than most from the USA. I'm neither American nor Japanese.

I'm from Japan and I love it!

I like anime music

23 Colombia Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a country situated in the northwest of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic more.

Shakira people! Also Juanes and every singer of urban music is somehow related to them, I believe they need bigger appreciation

Colombia has Shakira the maximum Latin American female artist, and Juanes the top male artist with most Latin Grammys. Also rising stars are J Balvin, Maluma, & Karol G.

24 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities. more.
25 Barbados
