While is was shopping in my local grocery, they often play some groovy middle eastern music, it is like the Eurovision song contested all over again but all of the songs are middle eastern some songs I cant tell Jewish from Arabic. I was thinking, wouldn�t it be great if they could try their hands at Country & Western music.

Is there any Country & Western music sung in any other language other then English? Well? What are you waiting for, go and find me some sites and stop gawping at the computer monitor

To the best of my knowledge, there is no language "Jewish". The more common language spoken by Jews is Hebrew, and to a much lesser extent, Yiddish.

I remember hearing some German language Country-Western music thirty years ago. (A title something like "Willie Braun, der Fernsehe Mann") The singer might have been Gunther Gabriel.

Could somebody explain for dummies what is "Country-Western music"? How do you decide if a song in a language other than English is "Country-Western"?

Elwood: What kind of music do you usually have here?
Claire: Oh, we got both kinds. We got country *and* western.

Weeping pedal steel guitar and lyrics about "my pickup broke down on the way to bail momma out of jail" are strong hints you have found a country music station.

Seriously the genre is pretty wide and varied these days ranging from nearly straight ahead rock & roll to traditional fiddle and banjo music. I only listen during pledge week on public radio. I find a lot of clever and listenable stuff there with just a bit too much twang in the vocals to keep me tuned in the rest of the year.

Ever try WinAmp Internet Radio? They have about a dozen country stations if you want to sample. In turn, can anybody tell me some place to find Indian classical on the internet?

French country & western is actually pretty popular in french-speaking Canada.

Of course, many of these songs are just remakes...

German country a la Gunther Gabriel is very focussed on some mass market.
I would see it clearly in the "popular after > 4 liter beer" category, which has its market here.
There are and have been since 60ties other, maybe more serious adopters of country. But its small. Except some stuff from Jonny Cash personally I don't understand that kind of music.

For Indian Classical Music you can try

www.musicindiaonline.com
www.raaga.com - This has more Film music, I guess.

My favorite is musicindiaonline - Has a huge collection of Indian Classical music - both Instrumental and Vocal. Also both the styles- Hindustani and Carnatic.

Hope that helps!
