Local block rockin’ beats

Well, being dependent on music for life as I am, I had a feeling that I may not be alone in this dependency. When getting into the mood of particular places, here are my recommendations for an appropriate frequency of sound waves.

These suggested artists vary greatly from traditional styles to the cheesiest of pop and some even manage to be both at the same time. The GTG is also very interested to hear your suggestions of music that represents a place/country. I have notably omitted the Unites States from this list as their music is so globally popular I felt under-qualified to select accurate representations. Enjoy, happy listening and until next week.
