64 Algeria Algeria Algeria, officially People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a sovereign state in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast.

Algerian music is a great mix of traditional and modern, and although there aren't many internationally recognized music stars from Algeria, if you heard some music from there, you would definitely be impressed! However, most of the music is a mixture of Arabic and French, with a tiny minority of songs in English.

I am Libyan and I have to say that Algerian music (particularly Modern Rai) is a banger. Vivid music, rich which combines traditional oriental beats with the modern Western upbeat tempos and therefore produce a unique blend. You might understand me if you have listened to 'Cest La Vie' by Cheb Khaled or 'Abdelkader'.

Beside many others, Cheb Khaled and Mami Are legends.
Khaled top songs: Aicha, Didi, C'est la vie, Abdelkadir,Trig lyce, He topped european charts and gained intl fame.
Mami : He reached his peak when he sang at the superbowl, he has an incredible talent for sad songs.

67 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.

70 Taiwan Taiwan Republic of China was established in 1912. After the Chinese Civil War (1949), the Chinese government relocated to Taiwan. Its capital was originally Nanjing but now it's Taipei. Mandarin is the most spoken language.

Taiwan is a wonderful place with great music! It deserves to be higher on the list in my opinion.

Taiwan is a small country, but most of Mandarin pop songs were from Taiwan.
They got fans from Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

Kpop is the best and the most popular kpop group is Super junior they are the best

Seiously, like I still have not heard South Korean music I do not like. Korean artists work very hard at what they do, most new bands debuting are also crazy awesome dancers as well. I reccommend, looking up Shinee, Mblaq, Big Bang, 2NE1, and Bi Rain the guy who started the Korean music movement!

Should be a lot higher

People think kpop is all about plastic surgery and looks. Not all kpop stars are famous for their looks, Psy is very famous, yet he is not considered to be handsome. Some kpop stars actually write some of their own songs, BoA writes some of her songs. Also, kpop stars have to be able to dance, which is not very easy. They also have to learn different languages, which is not easy at all. Someone with a pretty face, yet with no ability to do any of these cannot become a kpop star. Not all kpop stars use autotune, listen to Ailee and Minzy, they both can sing very good. Some kpop stars use autotune, but to get that electric sound to their voice, not because they cannot sing. Also, kpop can be very meaningful, not all kpop is about money, boyfriends, girlfriends, and parties. Every genre has a good and bad part about it. I may dislike country, but I do not think all country is bad, Johnny Cash is not bad. Every genre has good and bad music- AnimeDrawer85
