Well there are several factors on how to determine foreign music from mainstream music, a good way to identify it is the use of language. Language can detect whether a song varies from another song, it can also show identify its authentic musical roots by its language and its lyrics. Another way to distinguish foreign music it its intricate harmonies, some diverse cultures have different form of musical tones, harmonies, and arrangements which varies timely for the songs or music intended to be play on various occasions. It also arranges a wide range of different cultures, countries, religions and customs so most likely; it can be recognizable if you would compare it to new music. Furthermore, foreign music demonstrates diversity in local musical creativeness that shows different influences in cultural artistic history and character.

Well, i can't do that either. Despite my two months'experience of studying Japanese, it is hard for me to get what a Japanese says. Korean is pretty special, at least for me. Therefore, I don't think there is any problem for me to tell Korean songs from others. As to Italian, Russian, German, Spanish etc, i am not able to distinguish them.

Do you mean the exact region? Not particularly. I listen to Latino as well as Dutch music but I couldn't tell you from what specific country an artist is from just by their voice. I'd have to go online and check for myself to see.

Its not often I get to hear foreign music to be honest, I have a few auto-surf programs which I run to clock up credits to some of my affiliate links, and when I have the volume, a lot of the sites are Youtube and are foreign, but I know what countries they are from because the website is mainly German, so there is a mixture of Youtube videos playing music in German and French. I tend to find Irish music is best if I need relaxing.

I usually tell from the language and the accent where it is from, but I can not say that it is 100 percent correct. When I must tell where a person comes from, I pay attention to the person's accent and usually I can tell correctly. So based on this way, I do the same guessing where some foreign music come from. Have a good day.
