It can be an interessant question for me. What do you think about the music of your own country? I refer about music, traditional or not, sung in your own language, with a special "feeling" for the inhabitants of your country. For instance, I'm not talking about metal sang in english, altough it can be played by a... spanish, norwegian or australian band.

Do you like it? Do you feel identified with it?

I like our national metal bands. I support them 100% ! I think they are talented guys (they sing both in English or spanish). I just hate the fact that metal scene is not very welcomed in here and producers only care for other national music. For example most popular music here is a genre called "cumbia"  <_<  I really don't enjoy this music.  Their lyrics they are so bad! really meaningless and same phrase repeates over and over again.

I will always support our national metal bands!   :D

Hail!!

Well... here, the thing is pretty much like EReshkigal said: there isn't much metal support, as ppl here go more for like commercial stuff and all that new pop or new metal... which honestly, I don't like at all. We do have here some good bands like Delirium, Profecia (perhaps the best ones IMHO) and there are others like Blasfemia or Nosferatu... which I don't like  :P  And another thing... here ppl and mostly young ones like this horrible style that's called "Reggeaton" or "Playero" which is like a mixture of latin rap with Reggae music... honestly, I don't like it at all... I just can't stand it :angry:  :blink:  Folkish honduran music is actually fun... but it's a very repetitive ryhtm... and gets you bored very fast...  anyway... metal rlz!!

Hail to all!

Exactly same here! Cumbia, regeton (or however it's written), pop.... >=o( But actually metal (also rock and punk) support is growing quite fast...

Hehe!  Difficult for me to ignore Metal sung in English when I'm from England! :D  :P

Here in England support for metal is very poor.  Most people like pop crap and in my circle of friends I am the only person that likes metal.

This is from the country that (IMHO) invented Heavy Metal.  I love Black Sabbath and surely this is where it all began!! (and I still identify with Sabbath lyrics). And Judas Priest!  Check out 'Exciter' for maybe the first ever Thrash Metal double kick way back in 1979!!

Nowadays the only decent stuff from Engaland is done by Anathema (not really metal any more!) and The Meads Of Asphodel (spaced out black metal with a hint of 70's rock).

There are a couple of bands here that get attention (Cradle of Filth, Akercocke), but they kind of suck really.  Englands metal glory is long since past, I love stuff from Scandinavia and central Europe.

Hail to England! (for glories past)
Long Live The Rest Of The World!!!

I really hate some music in my country.
There are some really really good singers. But most of them sing some crappy pop stuff. We have some genre that you never heard before. I don't know how to describe it. I would rather listen hip-hop, pop, anything all day than that songs. We call it cajke.

Music in Canada... Well, being 15, everyone around me is simply saturated. By American pop-culture so it is all this hip-hop, rap, and pop crap. I am glad me and my friends have been able to stray away from pop-culture. Me and my freinds, we are all industrial, metal, and real punk (Since I have SHARPskin and punk friends, though I only like Dropkick Murphys)

Hi ppl!

Nowadays, music, popular music at least, is the reflection of the, still, unstoppable cultural globalization.
So, after these "too serious" words, I must say that  IMO each culture MUST keep its characteristics in all areas, including, of course, music. I know that the mixture is unavoidable, and it´s...healthy too, but being conscious of what are the roots of each one.
About "traditional" music here, in the Basque Country, it´s too difficult to find something "pure". I can write about traditional music instruments, that are mostly used in this kind of music. Wind instruments like "alboka" (like an horn), the "dultzaina", flutes, (Oskorri is quite famous band) and something imported in the XIXth century from Italy, the "Triki-tixa" or diatonic accordion, played together with the "pandero" or tambourine. Percussion like "txalaparta" used centuries ago for stablish communication...
The "typical" basque music, when is something to acclaim, would be played only by the Triki and the pandero. Sometimes companied by a rythm section (Alaitz eta Maider, Etxamendi eta Larralde...). There are several solo singers that sing a capella (Erramun Martikorena, from the french part of the Basque Country), "bertsolariak" ppl that improvises verses with a rime, or with an acoustic guitar (Mikel Laboa, or my fav Benito Lertxundi).
But maybe the most important element is the language, Euskara, that makes all different from anything.

There are also basque hip-hop singers, but they usually sing about politics. :P

Sorry but my english is not so well... :blush:

See U!

mmmm...... Colombian music *rubs chin*....
In such a diverse country, it is very difficult to define a "national music" but I will try. In the andean part of the country, the traditional music (bambuco, guabina, pasillo, etc) includes "guitars" of all kinds (six-strings, twelve-strings and even an eight strings guitar called bandola) and very few drums or flutes. I do respect this music because it is very hard to play and because it remainds me my roots. Although, the lyrics are usually cheesy as hell, they talk about love, about how beautifull the Colombian girls are (which is true :D), and about how nice and peaceful our country is (*sighs*).
In the caribean part of the country you can listen from cumbia (the real one!) to reggae. I have more problems accepting this music because it is very noisy and repetitive. Although from the lyrics point of view you can find it very interesting, especially the very old vallenatos (acrodions, guitars, maracas and congas) from Escalona. We are also very prolific in salsa, which used to be very good back in the 50's and 60's but not anymore. Now it is just a repetitive stuff with "funny" or sexy lyrics.
In the Pacific part of the country, the music is more like the traditional African music (much of the descedants of the slaves live still there). I do respect A LOT this music, it has its own energy and it is very special when you listen to it in the proper context.
And well, we also have the modern pop stupid colombian music which i dislike A LOT. It is void and senseless. Actually I would give the same description posted by many of you when you were talking about your contry's music.
Concerning Colombian Metal, hell, we have a bunch of very good groups especially in Bogotá and Medellín. They are not known outside of the country but you should give them a try if you can:
Eternal, Underthread, Masacre, Petilencia, etc.

Well that's all for my part. Perhaps other fellows Colombians can give further advise :).
