There's too many to name ;-).
Almost anything by Stiller Has, which is my favorite Swiss band. They do a mix of blues-jazz-folk-pop. This is one of their most famous songs:
Another Swiss band I like a lot is Sektion Kuchikäschtli. They used to make really good, poetic and intellectually stimulating hiphop (don't exist anymore unfortunately).
I also love all kinds of folk singers. For example Franz Hohler (Swiss), Reinhard Me< (German) or Lillebjörn Nilsen (Norwegian).
Furthermore, I love Italian music, which is generally very popular in Switzerland. My most favorite Italian artists are Andrea Bocelli, Eros Ramazotti, Laura Pausini, Tiziano Ferro and Zucchero Fornaciari.
Because of my wife who is Korean, I am also quite into Korean music. However, I am totally turned off by K-Pop. I'm okay with pop music but I don't like the commercialized mainstream type of pop that K-Pop is. Instead, I love Korean folk music. So the type of Korean music I listen to is very different from other young, western people. One artist I particularly like is Kim Kwang-Seok. This is one of his famous songs:
