Countries With the Best Singers and Bands
The Top Ten
To be honest I think that the Filipinos do deserve to be number 1 on the list. Some people in the comments are saying that Filipinos just copy American music and that they bring nothing new to the music industry but I think that the main reason why Filipinos aren't even world-wide famous is because not too many people want to listen or are aware of the country let alone the amazing and talented singers from this country. Fun fact, The Spaniards even wrote a note in their journals during a voyage to the Philippine Islands about the Coastal villagers of the Visayan Islands who sang melodious tunes and music while doing work. or chores. Singing has always been part of Filipino culture. Some may say that Filipino's are just like any other singers, but when you compare the famous singers in North America to the Filipino Singers from the Philippines and have them do a song battle, Filipinos will most likely win. Why? Because Most times, Filipinos sing their songs without the help of auto ...more
They're not really organized and mostly copy some music from the Americans/UK, but there vocals are very powerful... ratio to population they have the best singers in the world...there are more better quality singers in the PH compare to US which is 3x there population... (without auto-tune)
The Philippines is indeed the country that has the best singers in the world. Philippines may not be like USA or UK and even other countries that has the most famous and good singers in the world but Philippines has the most talented and amazing singers in the world waiting to be discovered. I'm not saying that USA, UK and other countries are not talented, I'm just saying that Philippines has a lot to offer when it comes to singing. To those people saying that Philippines doesn't deserve to be number one, your just outright rude and disrespectful, every country has its ups and down. And to the "Proud to be Filipino", it's okay to be proud but we should take it down a notch because it's getting to the point that it is annoying to the foreign people. We should not hate one another because of different opinions. That is all.
As an American myself, I have to admit that the Philippines deserve number 1. However, I believe the order should be (after the Philippines) UK - 2, USA - 3, CAN - 4, etc.
I place my own country behind UK because let's face it, Americans, we suck at live performances... Most of our "artists" lip sync the crap out of concerts, whereas, UK artists don't and they rarely use sound engineering to enhance their singers' vocal abilities. The only real performers we actually have are Bruno Mars and Beyonce... The rest are crap compared to other countries. Stop living in a box and realize this already.
I hear that Bruno Mars is half Filipino himself.. Sigh... But at least he was born American so we can claim him as much as Filipinos do. That's still kind of embarrassing. Anyways, to solve this issue we have here in the music industry, we really, really, really need to start supporting people with real vocal talents. We have them in the US, we just aren't supporting them. Wake the ...more
I love the music in this country there are a lot of varieties that you can hear the Melody, the tune the voices just amazing! - Lovelots from Ph
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!.-.
For those who says that Philippines are just a bunch of idiots when it comes on singing, shame on you! Many people here are being honest at their comments and PLEASE...Don't base or support your own country because you are proud about your own country. Many of you do not know about the great singers in Philippines it's just we have a better sound system than them that's why many of you says that we are better and most of all, I'm just being honest and I'm also an American. Check "Tawag ng tanghalan, The Voice" and different singers in their country.
Well for me, I think they base it NOT on how many famous singers you have, I think it was voted for how many people can sing in that country...Filipinos are indeed very good when it comes to singing, Philippines is very rich in music Culture... Almost every filipino can sing and some of them are really2 good.. I would say 8-10 filipinos can sing..Try to walk on the streets of manila, you will hear good voices, even 2 or 5 year old kid on the street can sing like pro...
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!
The UK has by far much better modern singers than any of the other countries on this list.
Italy has by far the best classical singers in the world.
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.
Has the best music in my opinion, not gonna name any artists or bands although I feel that music from the UK often has great story and meaning to the lyrics and they are songs you can easily fall in love with and connect with (well that's just my opinion on their music)
Canada should be after the United States. Canadian singers Rock! There are so many:
Justin Bieber is from Canada and his songs drive people crazy
"There are so many" no mate you listed 4 people
Three Days Grace!
We have Avicci, Robin,Abba and we have won the eurovision song contest 6 times and were the most beautiful people walking this earth...
We have best songs, and singers! We won ESC 6 times
Sweden had Jenny Lind. And Abba
Come on guys!
Children of Bodom, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Jerusalem, Arch Enemy, Europe, Meshuggah, Blindside, Opeth...
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
Name 1 German singer and you can't really say any Swedish other than Zara Larson
Ah yes! Australia has really good singers there too!
I love sia!
Australia should be at the top 4
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
Finland has to be in the TOP 10! - Apocalyptica, Finntroll, Korpiklaani, Negative, Children Of Bodom, Hanoi Rocks, Nightwish...
The angriest songs and they rock
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.
France Have the best singers!
I only heard from ratatouille
Zaz is one of best female singers in the world
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.
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!
Get NZ up the list! So many great singers!
India is the country where music born. There is nothing like Indian classical Music.Anyone who listen Indian music will fall in love.
India is top 10 on here just for its singers but India does not excel in terms of bands. Bands are not a thing there only singers are worshipped and revered. Bands are not popular, people make their mark by singing in Bollywood songs and doing solos on YouTube etc, that is popular there not bands.
Singing is a passion of most of the Indians. Romantic, pain, grief, represents the melodious music. I think India should be on #1.
India's got such rich culture in everything one could think about... And well music is no exception!
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
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
What the hell?! Only 17th place!?!?!?!? I completely disagree with this. Have you heard South Korean singers? They have such beautiful vocals.
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.
Ireland singers has different voice compared to how they sing if you get what I'm saying
U2, Enya, The Dubliners, The Pogues, Ronan Keating and so on.
Ireland has in my opinion the best artists.
So many good singers here
Where's Thin Lizzy & Black 47?
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!
Just here a whole Dominique Van Hulst (Do), she is really good.
Best DJ's For the last decade
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.
Yasss Pakistani singers are forever talented. Western countries are missing out on so much I don't feel sorry one bit for them that they think Pakistanis are all bad and Pakistan is just a desert or something (geography lessons didn't come handy eh..).
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.
Songs in the Anime are great! I listen to them everyday! Haha
Cory In The House is my favourite anime.
Some music give me motivation
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.
The best should be in first
Best Latin style
