t.A.T.u. = russian
ruby lin, arron kwok = chinese
H.O.T., SES and BoA = korean

oh, Jay Chou (or Chow) is really good too (Chinese)

American country music is really good! Seriously! You'd be surprised! Concrete Angel by Martina McBride can still make me cry, and I still cheer at Courtesy of the Red, White, And Blue by Toby Keith. ^_^ Even though I've heard both those songs about a billion times.

one of my friends is in the process of getting me hooked on Zemfira.. taking a stab at the English spelling since she's a Russian rock singer and thus has some not-English letters in her name... what I've heard so far is some pretty spiffy alt rock, although who knows what you'll find if the "official" English spelling is unknown :/

Rammstein! They're German ^_^

for ultra cool you can listen to Buena Vista Social Club (if you own a Gorillaz CD, then you have heard them already)

*mother has the BV CD and has both Gorillaz CDs herself* They're really good. So are the Mambo Kings (I think that CD
s in Spanish) "Andean Legacy" Is the name a really nice CD with pretty Peruvian instrumentals on it of you're interested ^^

I recommend Faye Wong and Ding Wei(both Chinese artists) and Jaurim(a Korean band)

BoA is Korean? Well, learn somethin new every day! SES is the greatest. A good, interesting band of sorts...they're a group of British girls I guess called Bond and they're more or less a string quartet and play classical music but it's..."modernized" for lack of a better word. There songs are REALLY good instrumental pieces. Great and moody feeling. I found out about em cause they were featured in Maxim cause they're good looking chicks...but the music is awesome.

And I know this is still Japanese music, more or less, and that you want to find something else, but have you ever heard any songs by Ryuichi Sakamoto? He has a great range of songs and at the beginning of his career he was in this techno-y band called Yellow Magic Orchestra and some of their songs are crazy fun. He's like Yoko Kanno...a lot of great songs in different genres...although I think Ryuichi Sakamoto leans slightly to a techno vibe in his songs...or like a futuristic feel somehow. I dunno. Good stuff tho.

hmmm most stuff I listen to is German... but in English... so i dunno if that helps you...

Lee Jung-Hyun is a good Korean artist. She did two songs that appeared on the "3rd Mix Korean" version of DDR ~ my favorite being Bakkwo. The music video is grand. ^_^
There's also.. um.. Tatu, the Russian band coming to America now.
