Portishead sampled jazz in a really interesting way. I also recently heard a band called Jazzmatazz who combine rap with jazz. A lot of contemporary kirtan combines electronic influences in an interesting way. I love love love Putumayo CDs btw.

Tareq Abboushi and Shusmo blend Arabic music with elements of funk, swing-happy jazz and Latin rhythms. I really like the combination!

I love to travel, listen to music and dance. What better way to do all 3 than to listen to Putumayo’s New "Beat" CDs.

I like many kinds of music. At home, I often put a CD in and let my preschooler drum along on pots and pans.

As someone who works with musicians and performers for a living, I can attest to the healing and life-affirming power of good music. I'm looking forward to hearing this new compilation -- music is food for the soul, and big thanks to Whole Foods for providing it!

African Beat and Latin Beat sounds great! Ever since Simon and Garfunkel did their African beat cd I have been hooked on the rhythm and style and there is nothing more upbeat then Latin music...Showing my age I felll in love with Getz/Gilberto's One note Samba and the rest was history!

I'm always looking for new great tunes and would love to add these new "beats" to my collection. Plus Sept 21 is my birthday, so it would be a great present.

This set would be a great gift for my husband, the drummer, who plays all of these beats and is passionate about world music...perhaps because he was born in Istanbul, raised in Greece, by a father who loved Latin music, and has traveled to West Africa. He deserves it.

Collaboration between 2 distinct music styles? I've enjoyed Laura Love's music, and also Paul Simon's. I still play the Putamayo "Dreamland" CD to help my now 10-yr-old daughter get to sleep at night, and I still love it after all these years. Thanks for having this contest.

With the drastic budget cuts to education and in particular to the arts, I would really use these amazing CDs for my middle school students who are suffering greatly at this time in our history. Kodaly said that we have to feed the whole child, not only with nutritional food, but with spiritual food for the soul. This music would serve the lives I touch for everyone has a music mother tongue as well as a spoken language.

I first heard your music selections while at a store in Asheville NC. Bought the world reggae mix and everytime I play it I get compliments!
