So is there any actual "Music Discussion" going on in these threads or do we just post YouTube videos?

One of the earliest afro funk songs I got into (Lagos was so funky in the 70s). Love the fuzz guitar solo:


"I really like the bongos in this Japanese lounge pop song" is not a sentence I thought I'd ever say, yet here we are. The sax is dope too:


Finally, if that doesn't tickle your pickle, rounding out this Power Trio is some bollywood funk for dat ass:


The drums slap and the video is cool too.

Anyone got something similar?

Not sure if this fits, it's from Serbia but it's rap music,

Afel Bocoum & Alkibar [2010] - AFH476


Born in Niafunke in Northern Mali, Afel Bocoum is a virtuoso guitarist of the Sonrai country. Here Afel takes us once again to the banks of the great river beside Niafunke, to one of the sources of the Blues... The theme of the song is, in addition to the river and its surroundings, respect for women, the values of Malian society, and politics.​

[Translation:]

Orazio Strano [1954] - Messina peppercorn flowers

How lovely you are, daughter, now that you’re grown,
A thousand desires rise up in my heart.
I remember how you used to command everyone.

Nanna ninna ninna nanna ninna naninanà,
Nanna ninna ninna nanna ninna naninanà.

Now, pretty one, you are engaged.
In fact, my beauty, you are sweeter than ever,
Tell me when your wedding will take place.

I give my infinite best wishes,
Certainly, lovely girl, more fitting.
Where will you go once you two are married?

The moon, my pretty one, is all honey,
A bride today is worth so much
That you are like a little dove flying into the heavens.

Then, when you go into your garden,
You will hear the song of the nightingale.
But, my beauty, [remember to] get up in the morning.

Markos Vamvakaris [1935] - Fragosyriani

A flare, a flame
I have in my heart
as if you had done my magic
Franco-Syrian sweet
as if you had done my magic
Franco-Syrian sweet

I will come to meet you
down on the beach
I would like to fill you up
all caresses and kisses
I would like to fill you up
all caresses and kisses

I will take you back
Finika, Parakopi
Galissa and Delagratsia
and let me feel numb
Galissa and Delagratsia
and let me feel numb

In Pateli, in Nychori
fine in True
and in Piskopio romance
My sweet Frangosyrian
and in Piskopio romance
My sweet Frangosyrian

Thanks, now I no longer have to sound like that chef from Muppets trying to sing in Italian
