«portugal» - best artists
Portugal is internationally known in the music scene for its traditions of fado, but the country has seen a recent expansion in musical styles, with modern acts from rock to hip hop becoming popular. Amália is arguably the most recognizable Portuguese name in music, today the biggest names internationally are bands like Moonspell (metal), Madredeus (fado and folk inspired), and Buraka Som Sistema (hip hop) or Wraygunn (rock, blues), and artists like Mariza (fado). Additionally the Psychadillic trance genres are seeing quite a rise in popularity throughout the world with bands like Sick addiction (psych trance). Regional folk music remains popular though, having been updated and modernized in many cases, especially the northeastern region of Trás-os-Montes.
Rock, Pop, Punk, Metal and Hip-Hop are the most popular music in Portugal.
