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

I love Putumayo! I have many Putumayo CD's, including African Groove, Dreamland, Gypsy Groove, Latin Lounge & World Reggae (which I am listening to as I write!). Putumayo is the next best thing to actually traveling and visiting all of these wonderful places, people, and cultures around our world. It is such a joy to have these mixes, which represent the colorful variety and sounds of our shared human experience, as well as everything that we all share in common--the joys of friendship and great music! And just as Putumayo is synonymous with World Music, Whole Foods is likewise synonymous with World Foods, bringing its customers, not only quality and wholesome locally grown foods and ingredients, but also the best foods and ingredients selected from the farthest reaches of the world, for us to experience at home. It may not be very practical for us to travel to Colombia or Bolivia for fair trade beans of pure, rich, raw rainforest cacao, jet to Madagascar for those aromatic bourbon vanilla beans and then zip over to the Island of Mauritius to pick up a bag of that deep, earthy Muscovado sugar that makes our homemade chocolate cakes sing--but we don't have to! That Whole Foods and Putumayo have formed this wonderful alliance is no surprise. That shared vision and vibe that has brought them together is what draws us, as fans, to them as well. Bless up, folks at Putumayo and Whole Foods! And keep stirrin' it up!

My favorite world music is a Scottish CD by Bonnie Rideout called "Gim'e Elbow Room." These are marvelous tunes. The title song is about children, who call out for respect of their personal space -- their time, thoughts and feelings. A joy to share with family.

I think my favorite so far has been the French Cafe CD; I would visit a tea house where that CD was often playing and it did so much for my mood, even on the greyest days! My twins love the Putumayo Kids CDs; the selections are always so lovely and approachable.

My favorite Putomayo CD is Arabic Groove. I dance in a bellydance company, and we have used every track on that cd to perform to! I'd love love love to see you produce more great Middle Eastern music! Thanks for the good times!

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.

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.

I started collecting Putamayo CD's years ago, when I lived in Arcata and heard the music on the public radio station. I love how Putamayo has brought little-known international music and musicians into our homes!

Can't beat those jazz albums - particularly Jazz Around the World.

Just bought a CD player for our granddaughters - 4 and 5. They are loving and dancing to all kinds of music. I think I will share with them.

I love your CD's - I play them for my clients during their reflexology sessions frequently and I often get comments and requests for the name of the CD. Keep them coming!

I have a number of CDs, courtesy of Putomayo. I can't go by a display without trying out the latest! It's opened my eyes to all types of music. Love the lively tunes and the way some languages just roll across the tongue!

I like many of the Putamayo collections. One of my favorites is the Rough Guide to the Music of Portugal; on that CD I fell in love with Margarida Bessa's "Fala Da Mulher Sozinha," but it's all-around a fine CD.
