There's still a lot of culture and diversity out there. Perhaps less so on an international level, but at the national level, I'm willing to bet culture and diversity is alive and well in the music scene. For example, in Canada, one of the nation's most popular bands is Great Big Sea, a Celtic-Folk-Rock band hailing from Newfoundland. Folk music and storyteller style musicans are very popular. But you wouldn't get that impression on the international level, as what gets pushed are acts like Alanis Morisette, Nickelback, and Anne Murray, and others that are fairly derivative.
So, I'm curious what everyone else sees on a national level for their own countries.
