The non-English language music thread

I've been thinking about posting a thread like this for a while now. I do have a lot of interest in music "off the beaten" path (not like a Rammstein or Sigur Ros, who are somewhat well known to the English speaking world)and in the non-English language vein. I've found there to be a whole lot of excellent artists out there, and quite a few have become immersed in my top ten.

So post music videos, album covers, everything as you wish.

Tinariwen is one of my big favourites. They're a group of Tuareg musicians from Mali, I find their music really captivating.

YouTube - ‪Tinariwen Amassakoul 'n' Tenere Hight Quality‬‏

I've also been a fan of Manu Chao for a while, Clandestino and Próxima Estación: Esperanza are both excellent albums. He's got a very playful, almost childlike vibe to his music.

YouTube - ‪manu chao-la primavera+me gustas tu‬‏

These guys are just about my second favourite band of all time, they've delved into many genres and are just generally brilliant. For whatever reason they're dubbed as the Russian Radiohead, which I don't really understand seeing as the music isn't really that similar.

YouTube - ‪Сплин Камень‬‏

YouTube - ‪Сплин - Первый снег‬‏

YouTube - ‪Сплин - Лабиринт‬‏

Had to post three videos since I couldn't settle on just one.

Tinariwen rules.

I don't understand the purpose of this thread, to be honest...it casts a massive net. However, it's here, so fuck it:

YouTube - ‪Los Planetas - De Viaje (audio)‬‏

YouTube - ‪serge gainsbourg melody‬‏

YouTube - ‪Os Mutantes - O Relógio‬‏

Amadou & Miriam - Welcome To Mali

I suppose you're correct, but I think it was worth posting and many good music that you wouldn't normally look for/find would be shown off here.

EXCELLENT thread!

I'll be very happy to introduce you to some of Israel's greatest music stars.

As John Lennon said: "Some are dead and some are living....in my life I've loved them all".

Here are two bright stars who sadly are no longer with us but who brightened up our lives with their music while they lived:

Ofra Haza:

YouTube - ‪Im Nin 'alu ♥ Ofra Haza‬‏


Uzi Chitman - singer/songwriter:

YouTube - ‫עוזי חיטמן - בארץ הזאת‬‎


More to come......
