As we all know, the music nowadays is dominated by American (or at least English-speaking) singers/bands. But I'm sure there are very good bands in your country who never became internationally famous (for example, because they didn't sing in English) but still are worth listening to.

It would be great if you not only provided the name of such band/singer, but also said something more about them, why you like them, and gave some youtube links to your favourite songs maybe?

However, there are two restrictions:
1. Don't mention bands you don't like. Please don't say "I personally hate them, but they are very popular in my country now". Write only about the bands you really like and you'd like others who don't know them yet like them too. They can be oldies. They can even be 18th century composers, as long as they match the criteria.
2. Don't mention local bands that only a few people know about. They have to be at least a little famous in your country.

Of course, if you live in an English-speaking country and you know bands that match the description, you can write about them as well.

I'll start smile I live in Poland, and I like these Polish bands/singers:
Maanam: They were very popular in the 80s and 90s. Their singer Kora is very charismatic and a bit eccentric. One of their songs is 'Po to jesteś na świecie" - I like it because it's so optimistic.

Anita Lipnicka: she has a very beautiful voice, she's also very pretty. She became popular in the 90s, now she records mostly songs in English with her husband John Porter. Here's her song "Wszystko się może zdarzyć", also quite optimistic smile

Hey: the band was founded in the 90s and it's been very popular so far... Their singer Kasia Nosowska has a very characteristic voice and she recorded some solo songs as well. They have many very good songs, "A ty?" is just one of them.

I clicked "preview" and saw how long this topic is, I hope someone will read it... o_O

I live in Canada, and though most of our music is pretty mainstream, we do have a few hidden gems.

One of my favourites is Malajube. It's a francophone indie rock band based out of Montreal. Their music is different, but nice.

My other favourite is AUSTRA. The main vocal is a trained opera singer, and mixed with the pop sound, it makes for a very interesting combination.

that the emperor wears no clothes,
but to bow down to him anyway,
is better than to be alone.”
