I like latin blues but also typical accordeon rhytms from Paris/France.

Thanks to magical voice Cesaria Evora, I keep coming back to Cape Verde. But I'm also a big, big fan of music from Mali and the surrounding regions. Or did id I say Celtic? Irish, Scottish, Breton, Cape Breton ... . Or was that Cajun? Zydeco, Creole, blues, soul, jazz, reggae. (Hmmm, I'm starting to suspect I'm unsure if I have a favorite music.)

I absolutely LOVE the Putumayo CD'S! I used to buy them in the coolest antique shop in Asheville, North Carolina. I have several of them, but have always considered "World Lounge" to be my personal favorite. It is like my own "Theme CD." It is the music that I turn to whether I am feeling bad or feeling good!

Although I am partial in my listening, I have special places in my heart for ethnic music and jazz. I think if more people listened to a wider variety of music, they would have a broader understanding of each other and the world. Music is definitely a language that transcends every other barrier and is a gift. Rhythm & Blues, along with jazz, is an American invention in the music world that too often is overlooked. Kudos for releasing this CD!

I loved reading about the inception of Putumayo. You have lived my dream life. Anytime I see the words living in New Orleans my eyes perk up. I own several of the CD's. I cannot say what is my favorite series but I do tend to lean toward the blues. I love world music so just about everything I have heard pleases my senses. I travel to Lafayette every year for the Internationale Fest just for the music and bands that I get to hear in one place! I also love Whole Foods. I have purchased many items there from World of Good and totally support all efforts to help those who struggle in this world! Thank you

My family loves African Playground. When the kids need some fun, indoor active time, I put it on and we dance our hearts out!

Music is the universial language for people of all ages. I love how music creates a memory during a meal. Rhythm & Blues is a great way to celebrate life. Cheers to international food and festive music.

I first discovered Putumayo CDs while traveling in Puerto Rico. I wanted some local music as a souvenir and chose the brightly colored Putumayo CD that caught my eye. I loved it from the first listen and have since run across Putumayo CDs in the Caribbean, Spain, and even Alaksa! My collection has expanded faster than my travels, however, and my current favorite is Music from the Coffee Lands.

Hi! My two favorite Putumayo CDs are: Animal Playground and African Dreamland. The selections on Animal Playground are upbeat, diverse and fun. A great compliment to family time or a child's activity or play date occasion. And also, my children ages 14, 11, 8 and 6 truly enjoy listening, singing, dancing and drawing/coloring while this CD play over, and over...again African Dreamland is superb for when you'd like to create peaceful, soothing and restful times. Beautiful music for all ages. Highly Recommend, Putumayo.

I own about 25+ Putumayo CDs, as a matter of fact, my entire iPod lists are Putumayo music. My favorite are the groove and lounge collections.

New Orleans is a great place to experience a various music styles. Welcome to the city! It sounds that the music on your CD's will nourish the soul and calm the spirit.
