I've been a fan of Putamayo World music for quite some time. Latin American, African, Caribbean, and especially Rhythm & Blues, New Orleans style ... its all SO good! Thanks and keep up the great work.

I have a number of these CDs but my current favorite is Italia — my daughter got it for me at the Whole Foods near our house for Christmas because my wife and I are going to Italy in March for our 35th anniversary. It's on constantly to get us in the mood for the trip (as if we needed more incentive!) Great music.

I can't believe it's been this long. Putumayo really started me on my love affair with world music. It's good to know that they are a social force as well. Keep the music coming!

I have about 30 Putumayo Cds and it´s impossible to choose a favourite one....maybe Arabic Groove, Music From The Chocolate Lands and Women Of The World International.

I love the World Reggae CD. I immediately begin to dance and it gets me in a really happy mood. I am a personal chef and as I listen to it on my MP3 while I am cooking, it inspires me to come up with tropical and Caribbean recipes.

I love Putumayo music. I have Cuba, Caribe Caribe!, Latino! Latino and others...They are inspiring, energizing or relaxing and just make you happy! I used to play them when I had a retail store and people loved them, now I use them for my client's when I do visualization exercises!

I make it a practice to listen to music from various cultures. This is especially true when I have spent time in different parts of the world. Nonetheless, I have found there are also wonderful local groups such as Kutandra that explore world music.

My family's favorite Putumayo CD is World Playground. My daughter loves to fall asleep listening to it. Not only the world music you pick is so great, the CD covers are just beautiful!

Putumayo is to music what ethnic cuisines are to my vegetarian life. It is the spice of life. Thank you for producing these amazing CDs

without a doubt, Portuguese fado is my favorite world music-it's Iberian blues at its finest!

My husband and I happened upon a group from the Andes who were playing the most ethereal flute (and other instruments) music in the open area of a shopping plaza in Monterey, California many years ago and we have been intrigued with that sound ever since. I love the combination of world music sounds (a blend, just like people) and always believe that music can bring together the most disparate beings--it's a shared experience. Looking forward to experiencing the new CD Rhythm & Blues.

I have loved Putamayo CD's forever and have shared them with others whenever, wherever possible. We will be checking out the French Caribbean one to serve as background music for our contribution to the Haiti relief efforts; Our Week long Helping Hands Community Service project with the approximately 400 student in our Elementary School. Now, that's the far reaching hand of global music!

My favorite Putamayo CD... that's a tough one....there are so many good ones..... But since I have to pick just one favorite it will have to be Celtic Tides.
