Celtic Tides is my favorite Putumayo CD. When I was in college, our dance instructor would allow us to choreograph to this music.I remember it being such an incredible experience being on stage and bringing a group of strangers together in unity.

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!

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!

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.

At the last Greek Festival I discovered the bouzouki. It has an incredible and complex sound.

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

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...

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!

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!

music from the andes.....mostly instrumental - best to relax and imagine you're there; and of course any salsa - brings back the energy and good mood:-)

Putumayo music is what I call "happy" music. I can't sit still when I'm listening to it. My favs include Latin Lounge, Latin Jazz, Women of Jazz. (BTW, it was hard to narrow this list.) My husband and I listen to our selections every Sunday morning: they lift our spirits and our appreciation of the world through the notes of music. Thanks for bringing the world to us through our speakers.

The CD's open us up to a whole universe of sound that many of us have not yet explored! Thanks!
