I don't know much about this topic, but I really like Towa Tei (Tei Towa) from Japan.
Here's one of my favourites from him: https://youtu.be/rHgTORRI-U0

He's the sampler genius from Deee-Lite.

The video makes me laugh too.

Just in case anybody forgot who Deee-Lite is, here you go: https://youtu.be/euUeCuwnZeU
That's one of their best tunes, in my opinion.

And of course, here's Shulman! A great band from Yisrael: http://shulman.info/

The Towa Tei tune was interesting. Dee-lite, I don't know. Shulman is a good groovy band. Have you heard Project RnL ?

Although what I meant by 'International Beats' is not only music made in 'other' countries because then IDM, hip-hop, rock, etc, can be made just about anywhere.

Rather it would be more like music that reflects local cultures. The thread would be an opportunity to share and explore 'different' music from all over the world. Sometimes it can sound rock, or pop, or like a ballad, but there should be clear local cultural overtones.

Fro instance, to continue along those lines:

The Shin - EgAri - Chips on the Water

Hanggai -轮回

I'm pleasently surprised by Project RnL so cheers, Jonetsu. Those guys rock. Are they performing live a lot?

No, they don't tour much, nor performing live locally. They did tour about 2 years ago with the Ozric Tentacles (space rock somewhat in the same vein as Shulman) in Europe, couldn't play in Paris due to technical problems, here's the take from Sofia (music starts around 3:30).

Eyal Amir draws a lot of inspiration from the music of U.K. band of then, Gentle Giant, of which here are "The Advent of Panurge", "So Sincere" and "On Reflection" :

So let's get this back on track with international beats, local flavors of around the world that reflect their heritage and culture.

Please share any such music that you know of, that reveals in one way or the other, local beats around the world.

HAYA BAND Mangos

Cheers.

I have the chance to live in Brittany where multi-secular cultural heritage was on the verge of dying a few decades ago but has been going strong since the 70' (a glimpse on the UNESCO website).

There were few attempts in the 90' to add an electronic touch in its music but it was too early and flopped, as the Celtic music was just accustomed to the use of electric guitars (like Dan ar Braz)

You probably already heard Denez Prigent in the Black Hawk Down OST. For the few people knowing what traditional musique bretonne has been through this was really huge :D

Nowadays, along traditional-style skilled musicians and great singers you can find nice beats like Plantec or Tchaïd

Yes, Dan Ar Braz. Malicorne is another one. Tri Yann also. It's great that these music are still being played and enjoyed.

In Ireland there's Clannad since quite some time, of which is Máire Brennan (and Enya).

Going just a bit more east there's Éric Marchand and the Carancebes taraf.

No, I did not know about Denez Prigent. I see he has made music with Lisa Gerrard of Dean Can Dance. OTOH, I do not like the images of that film stuck to the musical piece though.

Plantec is great ! I did not know Tchaïd - thanks for mentioning !

On the Québécois side there's Les Batinses "Parcomètres" and "Dereelium" and Les Charbonniers de l'enfer for instance. Or the very popular Mes Aieux - "Dégénération".

All of these bands draw from their respective cultures and add a modern touch, which is great.

The Gipsy Kings are my favorite international band, the percussion intro
on their concert album, and the general mix of rythym guitars and hand instruments
always nag at me to practice. Their music is the first audio medicine reached for,
if a dark cloud starts hanging around. Their Compass album reminds me of
some jovial coworkers I've had the pleasure of laboring with over the years.
Cheers

Molam music, authentic, from Thailand. Recording is far from optimal but the spirit of the music is there. This is an hour long track made up of several segments, a 'Best of'. I reckon these pieces can each last a long time.

Here's a very popular tune, based on traditional music, quoted previously in this thread, this time with Spanish subtitles :)
