Music Heard Around the World

What is a celebration — especially one of global proportions — without a playlist? Every now and then we feature music from up-and-coming artists, like Tennis from Massachusetts to mixes made just for merriment — such as our post, Bands Inspired by Mythical Beings.

To accompany our One Stylish World Celebration, we put together a mixtape of some of our favorite overseas jams from the Australian Phoebe Killdeer & The Short Straws to France’s Melanie Pain (formerly a voice of Nouvelle Vague). Profitez bien!

Who would you add to our playlist? Tell us, we’re all ears!

About Julianne

Julie Since graduating from the "Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too," Julie's aptness for the written word picked up steam like a runaway train. Her journey thus far has been fueled by an adventurous heart, creative mind, and love of breakfast, baking, and bacon. She often makes social situations more awkward than they need to be and loves the word "scrumtrulescent!"

    I agree about Washington, but also Jinja Safari from Oz, they are only new but I love their music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VThcYR7hT18

    Totally agree with the Frightened Rabbit! (my favorite band) Dappled Cities Fly from Australia is great. And Gogol Bordello is a like a world tour in itself! And you can never go wrong with French Yelle

    Also Beirut is influenced by French, Mexican, and Dutch folk music. An interesting multicultural melange
