As in being primarily of Irish descent I have been exposed to a fair number of old Irish tunes from grandparents, parents, and some folk performers who happen to be Irish. Do you identify with the music of your heritage?

Edit: I mean traditional music, not rock/metal/alienpenismetal bands that happen to be from your native country

Well there are some crazy people living up north in Sweden that are called samer or Sami's or something like that in English. They are basically like innuits, neanderthals or french people. I.e they are not very intelligent.

That's their homepage I think. I'm sure they hired a real human being to do it.

Well, my mom's side is pure dutch but I really can't think of any Dutch bands I listen to. On the other hand, on my dad's side there is British heritage! Most of the bands I listen to are British, check out my profile if you want to see more specifically.

There are some mexican rock bands that i like, but it's not like there's a huge difference between rock in english and rock in spanish. Of course, mexican rock bands always have more of a spanish influence, but it's still rock.

Los Caifanes, Los Jaguares, Mana, and Molotov are pretty cool.

I do, however, enjoy some traditional mexican music as well as spanish guitar and flamenco. (which is what i assume TS was asking).

Barenaked Ladies, Sum 41 and Celine Dion.

Um......not really. I'm part Irish and listen to Celtic music at times.

Yes, Scottish rock FTW.

Irish actually. Boston is mainly Irish, not Scottish.

Native American drum circles?

I'm actually Metis. I enjoy traditional Metis fiddle music. It's the type of music you can stomp your feet to. Native drum and chanting stuff is also badass.

I listen to some folk-ish music, but it is really just folk music and modern day lyrics like Elliott Smith.

I hate most tradditional music in general, tbh, except for orchestras and choirs and folk, the rest bores me.

I can tolerate Bluegrass but I don't exactly love it.


I do enjoy Folk music though, which is pretty native.

Mine would be quebec folk music... which would probably be drunk people, possibly with guitars and/or fiddles and the occasional piano, singing about random stuff.

I'd be surprised if any of that was recorded.
