Worldwide Playlist – The Project


The most representative artist / band by country

Who do you think is the most iconic artist in each country? Good question, isn’t it?

This project based on subjectivity and individual opinion (crowdsourcing) aims to determine who is the singer or the band that best represents his/her country regardless the era or the genre!

It will also aim to create a worldwide playlist and will be the starting point of a second future artistic project on which I have already started to work. To be continued…

How does it work?

For some, The Beatles is the most iconic group from England. For others it will be The Rolling Stones, Queen or Oasis. Some think that Frank Sinatra is the most iconic singer in the United States. Others think it’s more like Elvis Presley or Bob Dylan. Some consider that Edith Piaf is the most symbolic singer of France. Others think that the most emblematic French artist is Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Dutronc or France Gall!

What about you? Who do you think is the most emblematic artist of each country? Tell us in the questionnaire at the bottom of the page!
And see the results almost in real time. The data is updated every 10 minutes.
