I am a big fan of Portuguese Fado.
Mariza is pretty much Portugal's ambassador to the world. When she appeared on the David Letterman Show, Letterman seemed to be making fun of her with his introduction. After she performed he appeared humbled and had a difficult time looking her in the eye.
I have just listened to Reinhold Gliere's The Red Poppy all the way through, after being reminded of it by 'Yablochko' popp[y]ing up in the Sad Folk Songs thread a couple days ago. (Gliere's arrangement of that song as the Russian Sailors Dance at the end of Act I is the only number most people ever hear from it.) Lots of good music including a few numbers I wish I could get hold of scores of.
I listened to an audio-only version on youtube () but if you are so inclined you can find modern restagings of the ballet on youtube too.
