happy 37th birthday, martin persner!

International Music!

So I don’t know if this is well known or not, but YouTube has “Top Tracks” playlists from all around the world. Most playlists update daily so you can keep finding new songs as they are released! The only downsides are that English songs have made their way into/dominated many playlists and some of the videos are blocked outside of their own country. 

Africa

Americas

Asia and Oceania

Europe

Middle East
