This of course has infinite possibilities. Historically I've listened to almost exclusively English language music. But I've gotten into folk metal, and it seems like most of that is in various other languages. It changes the listening experience somewhat when you have absolutely no idea what the words mean.

Here's a Russian band I like quite a bit.

OK! Here are three consecutive posts featuring Polkas with lyrics not in English. Only one of the Polkas is in Polish or any other east European language. ;):)

Oh, I forgot I went thru a Cajun phase a while ago. I wonder what French people think of what happened to their language in the bayou?

This group has some of the sweetest fiddlin' I ever heard.

First Aid Kit are Swedish sisters. All of their albums have been in English. They did a remake of a hit song in Sweden from the 70s (produced by the guys from ABBA). They recorded it in both English and Swedish.

This is a cover of a song from a video game. I've gathered the song is fairly tongue in cheek, totally stereotyping Western views of Russia during the Cold War era. Here are various Russian artists more than happy to play along with the stereotypes.
