I like the native languages of each country of the world, therefore i like to listen several styles of music and mixing both things, because intrinsically, is a spiritual wealth !! Btw, have you heard about Rokia Traoré ?? She sings in Bambara/Maninka spoken in Mali and also in French :)

(( ► )) Rokia Traoré - Beautiful Africa

(( ► )) Erik Truffaz ft. Rokia Traoré - Seydou

Wow, a motley crew of Rhythms :) Although, the desert blues band + tuareg rock, I already knew them !! In fact, I heard about them few years ago, taking a glance at a poster of a Blues & Jazz festival
----
Btw, you mentioned something about those underrated bands, that is, the lack of acknowledgement or little International repercussion....Well, I remembered some stunning voices, sadly underrated such as :

Malou Beauvoir » A captivating, highly emotive singer . She sings in Haitian Creole, English and French ---- I love it !! :D

(( ► )) Malou Beauvoir - Nwaye

(( ► )) Youssou N'Dour ft. Neneh Cherry - 7 seconds
This song has been and it will be a true Hymn :), but Neneh Cherry was underrated as singer

Thank ya for Fatoumata Diawara, never heard about her before, loved it :).
Impressed by your prior knowledge of Gerry and Dead can dance :).

Languages, unfortunately just English and a tiny bit of Spanish, really only some phrases... but it doesn't stop me from enjoying the music in all sorts of different languages.
