Kottke's challenge

In answer to Jason Kottke's challenge today, here are the non-english languages in my music collection (or at least in the digitized part of my collection, I didn't dig through the cassettes in storage). Interestingly, if you removed one CD from my collection it would almost halve the number of languages represented.

Spanish: Calexico, Celia Cruz, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Lhasa, Los Lobos, Lyle Lovett, Machito, Manu Chao, Mano Negra, Eliades Ochoa, Ozomatli, Pepe & The Bottle Blondes, Mercedes Sosa, Buena Vista Social Club

Portuguese: Margareth Menezes, Maria Bethãnia, Caetano Veloso, Beth Carvalho, Elba Ramalho, Agepé

French: 3 Mustaphas 3, Les Negresses Verte, Serge Gainsbourg, Air, Mano Negra

Welsh: Gorky's Zygotic Mynci

Galego: Manu Chao

Xhosa: Miriam Makeba

Bengali: Peter Brook's Mahabharata soundtrack

Icelandic: Sigur Rós, Sugarcubes

Italian: Louis Prima, Cecilia Bartoli

German: Kilim, Schönberg, KMFDM

Yiddish: The Klezmatics, Les Yeux Noir

Rom: 3 Mustaphas 3, Les Yeux Noir

Indonesian: 3 Mustaphas 3

Serbian: 3 Mustaphas 3

Greek: 3 Mustaphas 3

Albanian: 3 Mustaphas 3

Arabic: 3 Mustaphas 3, Mano Negra

Turkish: 3 Mustaphas 3

Hebrew: 3 Mustaphas 3

And a special mention goes to:
