23 Mexico Mexico

The country where the most people know how to play an instrument and where most of the people enjoy music the most

I just love their mariachi bands.

A country that knows how to compose music with different instruments and makes music sound gangster, and better than rap.

I LOVE Mexican music it just cheers me up when I'm sad and makes me dance!

Music industry is suffering here. Too bad Putin won't bother investing in it.

Russia's music is great, though overlooked.

How is Russia under India?

Why is Russia so low? Are people forgetting that it's home to some of the greatest classical composers of all time? Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Rimsky- Korsakov, Rachmaninov just to name a few!

34 Greece Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

One of my favorite composers is from Greece and it's basil poledouris. He's composed music for movies such as conan the barbarian, Robocop, the hunt for red october, Hot shots part deux, Free willy, Con air, and starship troopers. My favorite track from him is riders of doom in conan the barbarian. It sounds so epic and grand. It's like he wanted to put all his effort into making the most awesome track ever (even though it's played while some guys burn down a village in one scene. Just a village, but it's still a pretty amazing track). It's definitely worth checking out.

Greek songs are some of the best songs in the world and the most uplifting songs.

You can't compare any song to a Greek song unless it's another Greek song.

The best mousic ever
