Who is your favourite musician from your country?

It recently occurred to me that there's an enormous wide range of nationalities on Mylot and it got me thinking that it would be a good idea to get to know some music from each other's countries. What country are you from and who are your favourite artists from that country? It would be nice to know why as well!
