My baby girl loves music. I've been playing all sorts of music for her this winter. She loves watching me dance and sing. All the movement is definitely keeping me warm.

Brazilian music is the best particularly during the winter months. I absolutely love Brazilian music when I am cooking spicy food in my kitchen while I am cooking for my family. Life cannot get any better than that!!!

My daughter studied in Sao Paulo for a year where met the man she is now married to. He now teaches Capoeira here in the US . Music is an integral of this dance/martial arts discipline. I love music from Brazil. My daughter loves the Putumayo Kids CD.

Went to Brazil years ago to a wedding of a friend and when we cook we love to listen to music. The culture was great w/all the meat you could eat til you put a stop sign up,chocolate daily,passion fruits,they had the biggest avacados we ever seen but ate them w/milk. Casasha drinks were great never had a headache,very affectionate and glamourous culture. Roads were very scary,we felt safe w/our friends.Very hospitable,we could learn alot.

I listen and dance to latin music (salsa, cumbia, bachata, cha-cha, latin jazz, mambo, latin pop, etc.). Keeps me fit while it feeds my soul!

I warm up my winter by writing piano waltzes, by playing Irish fiddle with friends, and by listening to Afropop Worldwide. The show has featured some Brazilian music that I really enjoyed. There's something so sexy about the beat and the Portuguese language. I'm not just saying this because Putumayo is a sponsor of Afropop! It's true. I don't always get to hear the show when it airs, and when I was on Soundcloud the other day (I have my own page with my classical/contemporary piano stuff if you want to see if it's true about the piano waltzed) I did a search for Afropop Worldwide and found all their mixtapes and many shows! I put many on my iPod and they get me through my day. I would really love to hear your Brazilian series. I would get it onto my iPod immediately!

We are constantly buying Putumayo Music- and following their newly released tunes on their website and sharing the music with friends. We try to buy more than one copy of whatever we buy and pass it along when someone asks us where it comes from. They are great gift ideas since each of their cd's offer eclectic compilations and are all inclusive of every background and nation. Thanks Putumayo!

What a wonderful sound to be playing in the background during the evening. Brazilian music soothes the soul and makes you feel alive. The group, Minas, is another group that makes fantastic music

Love, Love, love Putumayo! Lifts the soul and takes you to another place. My children have grown up with world music through Putumayo. It is one of the greatest gifts you can give them, exposure to other cultures, languages, and music. You don't have to understand the lyrics to feel the story of the music. We dance, spin, and live through the music! When you can't go outside because it I too cold wet and dreary Putumayo is transporting and a simple pleasure, a delight, it connects us and energizes us. Thank you! We love to listen at whole foods too makes a trip to the grocery store a sensual trip, good food, good music, and great people.

Of course, doesn't everyone love winter music to beat the snowy and icy (in Wisconsin) blues?

Being a Montessori Teacher, culture is an integral part of our curriculum. By introducing children to the traditions,customs,culture and music of a country they become immediately absorbed into the sounds and free spirited movement - moving their bodies to the beat and sound of the music becoming fully engrossed.

I haven't warmed up my winter with music, but that does give me an idea for a new tradition :)

I love Putumayo CD's. They are so much fun to listen to, better than your boring old music you here on the radio.

Music isn't just for Winter although it stirs the blood and moves my feet. I listen to music all the time. And working in a Library, I have access to a wide and deep selection of tunes, so I find new music I don't know as well as old favorites.
