Portugal's folk music, Fado, aims for place on UN's heritage list - more details here: 

A few years ago, I enjoyed an excellent evening of listening to Fado in a small restaurant on the Portuguese island of Madiera. Being part-Portuguese it spoke to something deep inside.  Thrilling melancholy vocals, and stirring mandolins. It's worth tracking down, and I must try to find some for the show sometime.
