I love Turkish music! It sounds so cultural yet so modern in an old fashioned way!

Just pure eargasm!

26 Pakistan Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan and is known as the world's second most beautiful capital city. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second more.

Songs included in most things, in dramas, for television ads, film, very musical!

I love pakistani drama songs they need to be promoted more

This ranking is too low sorry Pakistan is a musical genius

Pakistan is the birthplace of pop music in south asia

27 Netherlands Netherlands

I don't think people realize how much of today's musician's and producers come from the Netherlands. I mean you have LEGENDS from the Netherlands. Headhunter, Noise controllers, Armin Van Buren, Paul Van Dyk, Tiesto, Hardwell and so much more. These guys literally redefined electronic music, sure it isn't classical or pop, not even metal or rap. But these guys alone are founding fathers to what is now taking the world by storm.

28 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Certainly, it's one of the most musical countries in the world. Songs help Ukrainian people to work, rejoice, and simply to live. - Wonderful

Ukrainian is a very musical people in the world because it is from God and those changes. I LOVE UKRAINE!

Really great quantity and quality of songs in Ukrainian language.

Ukrainians are very musical nation. All people are very generous to sing especial national songs. As for me it's the best musical country.
Love to all Ukrainians )))

29 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.

Why did Bangladesh came to 28.cause it's a poor country.
It should be stay in number 10

I don't know why its number 25.. maybe kind of racism...

30 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.
31 Scotland Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain.
32 Israel Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel is a country in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea.
33 Jamaica Jamaica Jamaica is an island country situated in the Caribbean Sea, consisting of the third-largest island of the Greater Antilles.

For such a small island Jamaica has had a disproportionate influence on the musical world, Reggae is still one of the most popular musical genres in the world

There's no way Jamaica is #33 check your facts again. Latvia comes before Jamaica? Highly unlikely.

How did this happen?

Reggae, Dancehall, Dub, Ska...and the other forms of music with their roots in Jamaica like Hip Hop, Reggaeton and Dubstep. There is only one country in the world with a bigger influence on popoular music than Jamaica...and that is the US.

34 Slovakia Slovakia


35 Latvia Latvia Latvia, officially the Republic of Latvia, is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, one of the three Baltic states.

36 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

Look I'm Bulgarian and I'm 15. For am onth now I've been listening to serbijan music and I must admit its awesome. Give it a try, listen to Plava Ciganko nad Paklene godine of Mile kitic. YOu might like it...

37 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

How is Brazil not on this list yet? It should be number one in fact. Brazil has the most unique and some of the best rhythms in the world. Samba and Bassa Nova music pretty much define the "world music" scene.

Bossa Nova, Samba. UNIQUE Brazilian rhythms.

Are you kidding? All day all night samba?

38 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.

Surely Iceland's contribution to world music is not as great as USA's or UK's contribution, however taking into account the population of Iceland which is 1000 as smaller as that of the USA, as well as the fact that Iceland is home to such famous singers/bands as Bjork, Sigur Ros, Of Monsters and Men etc, I come to a conclusion that it is the most musical country. Besides, according to the ststistical agency of the country there are abount 1000 rock bands in the country... I think it's a huge figure fir a country with population of 300'000.

Of Monsters And Men comes from Iceland all that has to be said.

39 Puerto Rico

For being a small island it has produced some of the most artists than many cities it's same size or even larger states! Most of the top Spanish music hits seems to always be from Puerto Rico. Only Mexico, Colombia, Spain and the Dominican republic come close among the top Spanish music production.

Made salsa what it is today, salsa is one of the most popular Latin music styles and can be heard in America (NYC) it was invented, Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Africa, Europe and Asia. We also have Reggaeton, which is popular in many countries. Puerto Rico should be on this list.

Reggeaton, Salsa the two most popular genres including latin pop in latin america and even in the world also has plena, bomba, and danza it surpasses Mexico, Brazil, and the Dominican republi it should be at least in the top 20

40 Dominican Republic Dominican Republic The Dominican Republic is a sovereign state occupying the Eastern two thirds of the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region.

Bachata and Merengue are definitely in the top 5 Latin music Genres. P.S. the only good Mexican music is Mariachi the others are horrible no rhythm.
