I DJ for a dance group and love to use tracks from Putamayo. They warm up everyone.

The music I play varies by season. There are several kinds of World Music that I play more in Winter than at other times. Especially, I play music by the Finnish group Varttina, in particular their CD "Oi Dai." My brother and I are 1/4 Finnish. We went to a performance by Varttina on a cold day in Chicago, years ago, and left absolutely glowing with the warmth of their music and their persons. Also, I play Celtic music more often in Winter. A song that I find especially warming is "Feel So Near," composed and sung by Dougie McLean. For several years I've enjoyed listening to the Putumayo Radio Hour, Sunday mornings on WDCB (in the Chicago Area).

My winter is warmed by the music my 13 month old "plays" with his band set. He loves music and dances to any beat he hears. Watching him dance to the music - I just can't help but join in. These would be great to dance to with my little guy.

We put music on in the morning to start the day and warm our loft with sound.

There is nothing like listening to music from Brazil to ease the pain of a Chicago winter, even a mild one such as this!

Putomayo always brings the culture home. I like the Brazilian music sound and beats from mellow to latino rythms. I would really love to experience this music set. Thanks for this opportunity to express my desire, Whole Foods Market staff, it goes well with the good and healthy food you offer.

Almost daily, and espcially when we have cold days and must stay inside, we play music for my daughter and dance! We usually play educational songs or music from different cultures. We hope to encourage in her a love for learning, diversity, dancing, and music!

Music is something that brings joy to the heart and helps me escape from reality for at least a few moments and relax. It is pure pleasure. Thank you for your consideration.

I have been salsa dancing for a while and attend Zumba classes as well. Samba is the next physical activity/dance I'm going to master. I have checked out some Brazilian music from the public library and I love what I've heard so far. Looking forward to Brazilian Carnival via their music! Thank you Whole Foods for being global!

Music can definitely help set the mood by transporting you to a part of the world where the warm flower-scented breezes are puntuated by the rhythmic sounds of the samba beat. These CDs would be the perfect soundtrack to accompany a big pot of the feijoada, the national dish of Brazil.

I am currently job hunting and am home most of the time. So when it is cold or rainy out I love to warm up inside by dancing around to upbeat music with my cat!! Putumayo is perfect for this!

My wife and I love to play music while we are cooking dinner. It's a great way to unwind from work, have some fun with our little one, and gets us moving.
