Here's an example of music with no western influence. The tempo is erratic by western standards and it contains many half tones which sound weird and unpleasant to those accustomed to western music.

Here is a Kazakh pop song, you can definitely hear western influence but it also sounds different, maybe it's just the language.

This sounds cool!!! I like it.

Yeah, a techno based dance beat with a slight Latin sound. Replace the Language with Spanish and you'd almost have a Shakira song.

For me as long as the music is sung in the language of the country then it is no longer an American/British music.

Are these musics American?

The Finnish kantele is an unique instrument, and though it was common around the Baltic Sea region and Northwestern Russia 1000 years ago, the tradition has AFAIK disappeared pretty much from all countries except Finland.

The kantele is usually tuned into D major or minor, and may have up to 30 strings. Here's a girl playing snippets of Finnish tunes. Though the instrument is 'odd', the music is clearly Western:

It's still western music even if the second song is really bad. Typical common time in major keys. Changing the language has no effect on the music, just the way it sounds to your ears.

Study some music theory and you will see how almost all the music shared in this thread is at it's core, basically the same.

That's cool and yep, still follows western theory. What interesting about this is the song she's playing changes tempo but is still following a logical pattern and the notes are pure and clearly tuned. This song is in D minor.

That's what I do not understand what you are loooking for, even taking the traditional music of the lost tribes of the amazonia we will find the same mathematical patherns.

We have the same brain, the form differs but the background remains the same, that's why I make a link between mathematics and music. Paradoxically it is closely tied. But hey, I'm not a musician and maybe I'm telling crap

France Gall win the Eurovison with this song in 1965

Techno was invented in Yakutia apparently.

I've never been able to handle much Ethiopian/Eritrean music.

This Kurdish singer looks like a cross between Borat and the "Flea Market. Montgomery" dude.

I don't think Uzbek pop music will be taking the world by storm but I admire their ability to keep their culture thriving.

This guy is so legendary that Putin him lent him St. Basil's Cathedral to make this video.

K-Pop is the worst musical abomination on the planet. Unfortunately it's influence has spread throughout Asia resulting in pretty much nothing but bland, generic garbage.

Wrong!!! Techno was invented in Detroit! It was a subgenre of House which was invented in Chicago.
