My favorite CD: Afro Latino. Turn it on and the body can't help but move!

I, too, think that the spread of world music can do a great deal to achieving reconciliation across cultures. We tend to be blinded by sight, so to speak. Perhaps when we cannot see each other, the music lets us "hear" each other, moving us past boundaries we didn't even know we were guarding and aren't aware we have crossed until we look back at them in retrospect.

We love Putomayo CD's. So funky and unusual. Our favorites are Asian Groove; Paris; and India.

I do not own a Putumayo CD. I have heard the CDs when I have been in bookstores, coffeeshops and boutique stores during my travels across the country. I especially like the Latin and African flavored/themed songs; you can't help moving to the rhythmic beat.

I have downloaded some awesome samplers of African music that I really enjoy. I would love to hear this too.

I am a big fan of Putumayo CD's! Whenever I am stuck in traffic, I put one of them on and it is like going on a mini escape/vacation!

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!

The fun, colorful Putumayo CD covers captured my attention and my heart the first time I saw the display. My first purchase? Latino! Latino! which I still thoroughly enjoy.

I love the Putumayo CDs. My favorite is Music from the Wine Lands. Several years ago we moved to Northern California and this CD created a perfect setting for our trips to Napa. Now whenever we have friends or family visit, we always have this CD playing in their guest room to welcome them to our home and create the right mood for their vacation to Northern California.

Wow, I've been a fan of Putumayo World Music for years...it is nice to know the Whole Story. My favorite is the Best of World Music. I drift away to the islands and am immersed in the culture while listening to the CD. But, most importantly knowing that proceeds from the CD are used to improve lives and empower others to overcome life struggles gives me a sense of being part of something larger than myself and that as a collective we are making a positive impact on the world. I look forward to hearing the newest CD. Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

I have most of the Putumayo CD's. Variety in music is important to me and being exposed to WORLD music is even more important. Two of my favorite Putumayo CD's are: Brazilian Jazz and the Cuban-flavored CD. I am a massage therapist and so am constantly working at providing new relaxing music for my clients and for myself (how would you like to have to listen to the same tracks over and over and over and over... well you get the idea). I download the CD's to my PC and create playlists using Cuban conga, the softer songs, Bossa Nova and other great stuff. Then I download to my MP3 player and I'm portable! My clients often ask me what the music is and are surprised and happy to learn you can get it from Whole Foods! Thanks for helping my career and my sanity!

I've never heard a Putumayo CD I didn't like. Good music is good music, no matter where in the world it comes from.

There is so much variety out there- it is hard to pick. I really like some Cuban jam, or flowing rhthyms of Fijian songs, or Mongolian throat singing just to name a few. One favorite documentary is "Ghengis Blues"- about a blues player the goes to Mongolia and incorporates his blues with throat singing- quite unique and a great sound! So any mix or type of music is ok with me. Bring it on!

Can't wait for this one. This style of R&B was the music of my youth, and hearing it brings me right back to the old days!!
