My daughter *loves* all the Putumayo Kids cds we've heard so far, but I think our joint favorite is "Sing Along with Putumayo"!

Happy 30th Birthday Putumayo World Music! This is such a great assortment of world music to chose from and the global influences are fabulous! My entire family loves music and it great to have these CD to share with everyone at home and gatherings. I can't pick just one favorite - the Latino CDs are wonderful and we have Salsa, Cafe Cubano, Cuba, then there's the Blues/Jazz - Women of Jazz and Blues and Jazz around the World are both great! I could go on about the fabulous CDs. Keep up the great work and here's to another 30 years of great world music! Peace! Janice in Seattle, WA

Putumayo music is the chaos equalizer in our household. I put the CDs on when I arrive home from work - and the music provides a calming influece on both my kids and even my dogs

I love a variety of world music, especially salsa and cuban. Since I have a little one, lately, we listen to a lot of Putumayo Kids CDs, and Picnic Playground is my family's favorite!

My favorite Putumayo CD is Acoustic Women of the World. I love so many of them. We play them at ten thousand villages where I volunteer.

We played Putamayo's "World Playground" and "Sing Along with Putamayo" for our children endlessly when they were little. These two cd's were our go-to play time and bed time music. We loved them!

I love all the Putamayo music, but my favorite ones have to be the cd's for children. My daughter asks me for the "jumpy music" and we put it on and dance around the kitchen together, giggling and laughing.

Jai Uttal and the Pagan Love Orchestra - Beggers and Saints When I want to travel the world through music, I reach for this CD. It has classical Indian instruments (for that Far East sound)accompanied with vocals (English/Sanskrit/Hindi) that have a funk-pop vibe. Some instramental to relax to and some that make you want to dance. Great balance, which we all need more in our lives.

I have listened to many Putmayo Cd's but my all time favorite is " Women of Jazz." When I listen to the music on my Ipod, I feel as though I am in New Orleans surrounded by each and every one of these fabulous female artists who sing their melodies with such heart and joyous rhythm.

AOL Radio's "World Music" station is top-notch. It's great to be able to hear music from so many different places...

I am a Milwaukee Public School teacher! I play Putumayo World Music everyday while my students eat breakfast. They are developing a new appreciation of the world around them through music! It's really awesome. Our favorites are French Cafe and Sahara Lounge!

I am a huge Putumayo fan! You've created such an amazing collection of music...music that I, otherwise, would not have been exposed to. I've enjoyed many of your CD's and have loved sharing them with my children! Thank you!

I love listening to your New Orleans Brass CD! It reminds my of my grandfather everytime I play it. One time, I even used it to keep my friend and I upbeat while painting the inside of her house :) You provide a great way to expose anyone (who will listen) to some possibly awe-inspiring, fun-filled, exotic, moving and overall wonderful music. Thank you!

Hearing the Portuguese-tinged Brazillian beat makes my day and transports me right back to the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. 8sigh* Thank you Putumayo!

They are all great and I love teaching children with the cds. Everytime we learn about a new country or region we bring in the music and the food. Right now we are learning how to Salsa Around the World. It gets our hips swinging, cha cha cha...
