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 really don't like exercising and even tho I'm a "senior citizen" I love to dance and this would be great to exercise dancing around the house to.

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 find music to be one of the easiest ways to soothe the mind and body and high energy music such as this style is so perfect for spicing up cold winter days. I so look forward to hearing them!

I love music in general, but Brazilian music just makes me want to get up and move! Putumayo's CD's are a great way to get into new cultures and they all sound great!

I love cooking while listening to a Brazilian music. I think it makes my food taste even yummier.

Winter, spring, summer, fall... I can't think of any time during the year that music doesn't heat up the world, especially when you're listening to the fiery and passionate styles of South America. During the winter for me, I like to play brighter, faster music fusing traditional Latin/South American influences with more modern beats and rhythms -- think Wally Lopez to get things started. Takes my mind off the fact that it is absolutely butt freezing outside. Or I slow it way down and enjoy something like Diego el Cigala while I cuddle up in my pjs, furry booties, and a good book. I love it all! I just hope one day to travel through South America and get a feeling for where this music comes from.

i have been a fan of brazilian jazz since the 60's. antonio carlos jobim, astrub gilberto, sergio mendes, jao gilberto, ivan lins, etc. picked on by my friends in thoose days as brazilian jazz was not yet mainstream. i adore it. very sensuous and gets my juices going, to to speak. as a recent brain surgery, brain tumor survivor it would surely brighten my mood and pique my health to win the set. thanks.

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!

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!

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

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

I believe that it is important for children to hear all types of music from African to Israeli from Jazz to Classical. I would love to have this set for my 2 boys to listen to in the car and at home to expand their music genres!
