Do you regularly listen to ethnic music from completely different cultures than your own? Not talking rap or country. I'm talking Arabic, Peruvian, Indian, etc.

I don't regularly, but I do listen to Psy (K-Pop) and the occasional song from Mexico.

I'm a white atheist and I like listening to Muslim prayers. I still don't know why.

Probably because they are gorgeous.

I'm a huge fan of Arabic music.

Technically no, because I am culturally Argentine as well as American. However, I do regularly listen to music in Spanish that is usually not played on Latino radio here in the US (or Mexico and Central America, for that matter).

Not that I can think of, other than Moroccan music, but then only as accompaniment to the belly dancer. Or traditional German music, which isn't my culture, but it is the culture of most of my great-greats.

I deeply enjoy Celtic music as well as bagpipes. But I have Celtic heritage so I answered no to the poll question.

I know. I thought I'd throw that in there. Does Clannad & Enya count? Enya is so therapeutic and calming to me. She is so smooooolth.

Ditto Enya. Therapeutic is an excellent descriptor.

I have listened to Appalachian music before. It's not from a different country, but it's from a very different culture.1

I've been obsessed with Indian culture since I was about 15. I actually requested England as a duty station way back in the day with the sole reason of finding an Indian girl with a British accent to marry.

Ended up marrying a US Soldier. Ugh :p
