Top 10 Countries With the Best Singers and Bands
I think Philippines is the most beautiful voice when it comes to singing..they can sing even if it is Acapella. Unlike the other country that they need autotune to make their voice beautiful and great...You know what Philippines have 91% singers, wherever you go you can find a singer there .like the people walking in the street... And one more thing I like in the Philippines They are very simple all woman there don't need makeup to prove that their beautiful..Yes the other country need makeup just to prove their beauties, but believe me Philippines having a very natural beautiful woman.
Maybe the Filipino Artists are not the most popular but trust me they are the best. You'll know the difference of Filipino Artist from others once they sing live. Abusive used of auto tune and vocal effects act as a mortal sin for them, haha. Try to watch at least 5 well known Filipino singer, I am sure you'll fall in love to them. You're lucky enough if you knew these artists, because you're losing something if you're not.
I'm a Filipino and honestly, most of my friends and relatives can sing. They have beautiful voices, not as powerful as Mariah Carey but you can say that they are gifted with it. Even my Grandma and grandpa loves to sing Elton John and Tina Turner's songs. And they nailed it! We sing every where, at the Comfort Room, Bedroom, Classroom, anywhere!
The Philippines obviously have a lot of talented singers. Some people can't just express their talents because of lack of confidence. But there is no way that you can't find a talented Filipino singer anywhere.
The USA loves Auto tune, so how did the others become involved in singing? Almost all of the Singers in the US now use Autotune. The song is also not meaningful. How can that be Number 1 if only a few people don't use Auto tune, so
The US is just famous so they are more noticeable.
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!.-.
yes this is sec united state for the top .but the best for me is Philippines because I know filipino are good they love Karaoke and they are friendly .filipino are the best for music in the world but Philippines are not rich .
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
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!
Canada should be after the United States. Canadian singers Rock! There are so many:
I like canadian music
Justin Bieber is from Canada and his songs drive people crazy
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.
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!
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...
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.
Best in Europe for RnB, RAP, soul, rock, beat, rock psyche, garage rock, pub rock, mod revival, underground mus.
France Have the best singers!
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!
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.
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
SK should only be second to Philippines when it comes to the nation's singing prowess. I've lived in many countries including SK for several years and I must say 90% of everyone I know there can sing SO WELL. The noraebang culture probably helped (similar to the Philippines) and it has shown globally with the rise of k-pop groups and music dominating global charts and garnering billions of fans all over the world. Music is definitely in their blood.
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.
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
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!
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
I mostly heard of it through anime. But even if the language barrier is present, the emotions reach.
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!
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.
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.
