How does music tastes differ from country to county?


Yes, I’m not stupid, and understand in some countries culture plays a very big part of what they listen to.
For instance, in Latin America it’s pretty obvious what they groove to, but in other parts of the world it’s not so obvious. Here in the U.S.A we a very diverse range of music genre everything from pop to classical and you name it. So if Music is a universal language, what’s the language being spoken in other parts of the world or is it pretty much the same as here?

An Indian raga speak to the heart like a Muddy Waters blues when you learn to listen to it with an unknown part of your heart dedicated to it....Different music, same heart.... The heart is too complex to beat on the same rhythm forever....
Bach composed the greatest music  that has  ever been written .
And is known worldwide .

The greatest sarod musician of India think the same... After that my own opinion is not of much value but I will add it to your affirmation....

Just for the pleasure to tease you tough and express my experience, Scriabin after Bach.... :)

I think the main reason for cultural differences, is that many artists don't travel. Not in the literal sense, rather that they are unknown outside there own country. When you get beyond Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga, how many artists are famous throughout the world.

Frankly, finding new artists is one reason I haunt this site and the music section in particular. Acts you might think everyone knows about, well you would be surprised. There are so many examples of great artists I have discovered, Shawn Colvin, Jason Isbell, the Milk Carton Kids and on and on.

 As for British artists, I would think few of you will have heard of Kate Rusby, Martin Simpson, both of whom have graced the folk scene here for decades and I guarantee, you will love. Maybe I'm wrong and you do know them, but I doubt it.
