Countries With the Best Music

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Finland

Has everybody forgot about the eurovision winner's Lordi, ando which is worse they have the representation of the Rasmus too. I think they have to be in higher places on this list

Finland really should be in the top 10. Come on Canada.. Justin Bieber vs Nightwish?

My favorite finnish bands are nightwish, ensiferum, apocalyptica, lordi, finntroll, and wintersun.

Still wondering why Finland's 20, they make great metal/rock. Korpiklaani is the best.

22 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. It is known as the most peaceful country on earth.

Of Monsters And Men is one of the best band of all time I love Indie Folk music best band of all time from Iceland great singers beautiful voice at singing.

Icelandic music has such unique styles that set it apart from most music from other countries! It's really hard to miss!

The folky atmosphere to Icelandic music is very different and very intriguing.

Sigur Rós is possibly the best band of these days and Björk has been an inspiration for many female vocalists.
But Iceland is more than only SR & Björk. Olafur Arnalds is one of the most talented composers, Ásgeir does amazing indie-folk, Kaleo is a fantastic rock band with remarkable success in the US. The list of great artists here is very long

South African house music is on the rise...we have some of the best House producers in the world

Ladysmith Black Mambazo are wonderful, as are all the isicathamiya groups. The harmonies and African folk influences in S.A. music take us back to the earthy heart of human civilization. Warm and full of joie de vivre.

28 Scotland Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

Angus young of ac dc was born in scotland despite being raised in Australia so I guess that counts.

My favorite scottish singer is annie lennox. She has such beautiful songs and a beautiful voice!

Travis, but the quality sadly ends there.

How can Pakistan be on number 29 in list, as she has the most talented musician and singer.

Yes of course Pakistan is the best music country

30 Russia Russia

Russia's music is great, though overlooked.

How is Russia under India?

Most Russian music sound like someone torturing a chicken.

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!

It was established in 1949. Its capital is Beijing. The other major cities are Hong Kong and Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only official more.

Has absolutely beautiful traditional music that often convey the feelings of love and sorrow. Really shouldn't be overlooked as China have some of the most ancient and diverse cultures in the world.

China is often overshadowed by Japan and Korea. Honestly, Chinese music is the best. The traditional music is great, and so is modern music. There ExoM, Luhan, GEM etc...

Harlem Yu, Jane Zhang, the Mouth band, Emil Chau, etc. including Hong Kong and Taiwanese artists, unite for one language, Mandarin Pop!

New Zealand has many talented stars that have made it to the top of the charts. Think Lorde, Kimbra, etc.

Well, we have Stan Walker (I don't know if he is a kiwi or a Australian) and that's about it...

New Zealand doesn;t have many famous singers but everyone in the country has a musical talent

The birth-place of Keith Urban!

35 Cuba Cuba Cuba, officially the Republic of Cuba, is a sovereign state comprising the island of Cuba as well as Isla de la Juventud and several minor archipelagos.

South American and African countries are sooo underrated compared to Western (rich) countries! - Ethnopop

36 Thailand Thailand Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is a country at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia.

Never ever ever give up for the best rock music ever with a traditional music blend like Bodyslam with Siriporn Amaiphong, Slot Machine, among many others. #ThaiGersUniteForMusic!

37 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.

The greatest artist to come out of Greece in my opinion is vangelis.

The entire country of Greece is based off music

39 Bangladesh Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

Bangladesh have a gorgeous history of music. We have legends like Lalon Shah here. Now a days people are conducting research on his music... Our folk music is really great... Beside folk music we have a wealthy pop and rock music resources. Our Rock and especially the Underground rock music probably the best in South Asia. We have bands like LRB, Miles, Warfaze, Souls, Artcell, Black, Cryptic Fate, Nemesis, James and Nagar Baul, Shironamhin, Aurthohin and many more... Who are producing some great music and also very popular in this region.

Bangladeshi music is the best in the world... Especially Folk and Rock music.

Bangladesh folk music is prolly the best folk music out there. I honestly hate the modern music of Bangladesh but the folk music such as Shah AbdulKorim and Hason Raja songs can give you a different feeling. You gotta find the right singers for the song because many use auto-tune and only a few singers are good. But the right singer for one of those songs and you will fall in love. But nothing beats English music, MJ

40 Portugal Portugal Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe.

X-Wife, Sean Riley, Wraygunn, Dead Combo, Vicious Five, David Fonseca and many many others

Meaningufl lyrics by artists such as Pedro Abrunhosa and Tiago Bettencourt, great Rock such as Ornatos Violeta, Xutos e Pontapes and Silence 4, and great vocals such as Marisa singing the typical portuguese Fado music.
Many artists have the ability of connecting ideologies and comedy in their lyrics, as well as pain and the most common song subjects such as love.
