• Not to me. I have a CD by a Tibetan musician that sounds compeltely different than the German and Spanish music I listen to. I don't speak those languages, but I enjoy the music.
  • I have music from Africa, Cambodia, China, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Laos, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Thailand, Tibet, Turkey, Tuva and, Viet Nam and they all have their own unique sound. The only language I speak besides English is Japanese.
  • No, music does not sound the same. Music is written in a universal language because it has elements that are the same to all cultures: like a melody, rhythm, harmony, tone color, dynamics, pitch, etc. You can understand the music to a degree of comprehension even without understanding the words. Those elements vary so they don't sound the same.
