    I've always enjoyed the Ukrainians (I think you can guess what language they sing in).

    They do their own songs but quite a few covers as well, and they're doing a whole set of covers at the Brudenell in a couple of months, so you can enjoy songs you already know in a different language.

    Difficult for me to speculate (as I'm a Welsh-speaker), but it's 15 years since SFA released Mwng and it's still a brilliant record. In fact, there's probably an argument somewhere that it's even more charming if you can't understand the lyrics.

    The best thing about Wales. The amount of these I eat when I'm there is just ridiculous.

    I think Belgium have tried to claim them as well. I don't know. I just know that they're ace.. Also, in Tywyn there's this honey ice cream factory which has to be the best ice cream I've ever eaten. Proper good.

    I enjoy music where I have little idea what the words are, or only a vague idea.

    This is about a big hat i think...

    This is about growing old(er). Admittedly my French is above average.

    I have no idea what these guys are singing about but its a beautiful noise

    Only Elizabeth Frazer knows what this means.

    I like a lot of French and Spanish Hip-Hop. Iam were a great band, Mc Solaar, Abd al Malik, Etc - usually much more political than bling and best seen in a big tent in southern France. Tranq!

    Saw these at the Wardrobe. Now based in France, but Cuban - which has a fine jazz history obvs. This is a fan Video I think, but most of theirs have a lot of beach dancing, which sometimes lets the visuals down...
