Unlike most Americans I've been a big fan of non-English language singers since the 1960s....moving to NYC in 1959 was paradise, foreign records stores all over the city back then...before gentrification, of course.

Mouth Music, singing in Scots Gaelic:

Mouth music "He Mandu" - YouTube

Ana Vissi, Greek...her album Kravgi has several great songs.


Anna Vissi - Kravgi - YouTube

Aster Aweke...truly great Ethiopian singer


Aster Aweke - **~Bati~** - YouTube

Om Kalthoum, had one of the largest radio audiences in the world in her heyday of the 50s and 60s, still sells. Her best recordings are the ones where she sings for anywhere from twenty to thirty minutes with terrific ornamentations and improv.

Dulce Pontes, current Portugues singer

Cancao do Mar - YouTube

Tabanka Djaz from Guiné Bissau

A song by a very popular band in the Philippines. A small part of it is in Chinese because the setting of the video was Manila Chinatown, with a Chinese-Filipino girl. I think you'll be able to differentiate which parts are in Chinese and which parts are in Tagalog because they sound so different, at least to me...

Oh yeah... With women like that in the audience, I understand that he really needs to sing "Ai se eu te pego... Delícia, delícia..."
