Several German bands (Helium Vola, Qntal, Estampie) sing in Latin (and often in other "dead" languages like Old French and Middle High German)*. Is this a phenomenon unique to Germany, or are there other places where modern secular music is still being produced in Latin?

* Usually the Latin lyrics are not original but from medieval texts like the Carmina Burana or medieval writers like Alanus ab Insulis.

I'm not sure that this answer covers what you were aiming for, but I could not resist posting this as an answer.

This YouTube channel has several Latin covers of popular songs. Here is a recent cover to "Reflection" ("Imago") from Mulan.
