Top 10 Countries With the Best Singers and Bands
Filipinos are best known for singing, no matter what age, race, gender, either a professional or just a simple citizen of the country. I think its part of their culture. Karaoke is everywhere. Most of the Filipino family used to celebrates birthdays, holidays, anniversaries and other special events with a Karaoke. That's why it was adapted generations by generations.
Obviously, Filipinos are known for bananas, mango, food delicacies, and Islands. However, Filipinos are also good at singing that you can found it everywhere. Filipinos barely use auto tunes. You can try it and you can ask someone for them to sing something to you and it's really great. I swear. But because of their economics or whatever it called, their talents for singing is not well-known around the world. Also some of them are too shy or they do not know what a great talent they had. They keep looking down to them selves but not all of them. They were still Filipinos who showing their great talents not only in their country but also to the world. I really have many things to say about their singing but I hope it helps.
Idc what anyone says, American created the most popular genres in the world. So all these people saying K-pop is good, remember they use hella auto-tune as well. Cause in reality they can't sing any better than anyone. They are literally just popular off their looks. I think India also has some really great singers, especially Latin Americans with beautiful voices like Luis Miguel, Yuri, and Ricardo Montaner. But either way, America will be number one regardless because it created the remarkable genres we have today. Plus, I have not seen any better singers than Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, and many other legendary artists. As for the Philippines, I don't really have that much opinion on why it's number 1. I have never ever heard any type of Pinoy music, so I can't say it's bad or good. But I think America deserves its place.
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!.-.
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.
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
Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone... read more
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
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.
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!
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.
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 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 shows and 90% of entrants sing extremely well.
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
Japan has a huge capital city called Tokyo, other cities in Japan include Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Osaka, Nagoya and Sendai. It's close to South Korea,... read more
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 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 anime; in fact, anisongs can't be compared to the real thing. Anyways, it's better than most music from the USA. I'm neither American nor Japanese.
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
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.
The country is situated in Western-Central Europe, and is bordered by Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. Switzerland is a landlocked country geographically... read more
