Some of WHAT? We're still trying to figure out what you are talking about. Can you make a reference to something beside "it", to give us a clue? Like, try using real nouns.

Authentic traditional ethnic music occasionally seems ambiguous and could indicate plenty of music genre styles depending on country.

My favorites for that kind of music in particular is from India, Thailand, Japan, France, Italy, Spain, and Brazil.

Meh. RumNCoke is probably one of those people who thinks all those British Invasion bands are actually American, all the great artists/bands/actors that came out of Canada are American, gets all of his/her history from inaccurate Hollywood movies, and is part of the "if it wasn't for us, you'd be speaking german right now" crowd. Let's not forget that this is the same person who apparently just crawled out from under a rock, and claimed Americans do NOT, in any way, shape, or form, share in the fun of poking fun of others with the rest of us, dispite the evidence of the awesome youtube link jtur88 posted, where they totally thrash Canada.

Ah well. Thankfully, not a representative of the vast majority of the US population.

You guys are so defensive (HIGH STRUNG!). Talk about bringing out the torch and fire sticks out at even the slightest idea that someone just may not find your home countries particular music all that invigorating.

Oh and guess what........... the thread was created by you! Well you have your answer.

Ignorant, some of the best music currently and in history comes from the UK.
My thread still stands tall and raises question to an unnecessary resentment.

I never mentioned nor hinted that some decent music has never come from any place else. I know for a fact that I love some of the bands that have come over from the UK. However, to be fair and to stay on topic with the current discussion. You asked about tradition music other than the US. So ya sure many of those bands that came over from the UK and made great songs but they were essentially singing American Style music. Yep. Im so sorry but Rock and Roll is American. And to be fair even when they sing their songs they sing with an American accent. The only person who retains their accent when singing would be Sophie Ellis-Bextor and shes a pop (which is still essentially an American created sound of music) singer. Sorry if any of that sounded rude but it is true. I feel so sorry for you. ; /
