My daughter is now learning to play the blues on the guitar :)... a wonderful opportunity to dig out my favorite blues CD's and enjoy them all over again. I am impressed with your CD's so far, I am sure this one will not leave me dissapointed! Thank you!

These CD's have provided great exposure to world music and have been an invitation for me to exlpore varied cultures more deeply. They have even been the impetus for travel, dance,volunteerism and culinary experimentation! What a wonderful resource, education, and entertainment!

The CDs from Putumayo are a great way to sample world music. My favorites, though, tend to be Celtic music. Just right for those moments when some reflection is needed.

I can highly recommend Putumayo. Latin Reggae and World Reggae are two I have that have expanded my musical world. And they're just two among several others. Enjoy the music indeed.

I have loved Zydeco music ever since I went with friends to the jazz fest in New Orleans. The second year we went was quite an adventure. Some friends bought a six-sleeper pontoon boat and started out in Chicago for a trip down the Mississippi to NO. They picked me up in St. Louis and six days later we arrived in NO in time for the Jazz Fest. We listened to some great music on the way down and of course at our destination. That was way back in 1988 and the memories always come back when I hear some great NO music.

I make it a practice to listen to music from various cultures. This is especially true when I have spent time in different parts of the world. Nonetheless, I have found there are also wonderful local groups such as Kutandra that explore world music.

What a wonderful story! I have purchased your music and brought my family up with listening to it everyday. I share it with patient families and with friends. My own family went through a tremendous tragedy and music carried us through the days. This music not only enriches our lives but helps to heal and lifts spirits. I can't wait to hear your new CD. Two of my daughters have made trips to help cleanup and rebuild after Katrina and one of my volunteer groups also includes docs and nurses who are also master gardeners making trips to New Orleans. I love the people, the music, the food.

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoy all your cd's that you put together; however my two favorites are: South Pacific- love this! From Hawaii and love all the music, especially the one from New Guinea. Also love the one with Samba and Bassanova. Can't remember the name right off hand, but listen to it often. Oh, the other one is Kids playground cd. Great job in selecting perfect compilations. The more you do, the more people are exposed to great music from around the world. Love your story. Mahalo! Tee

There are so many excellent Putumayo CDs. One in particular I'll recommend is the Cape Verde.

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

I don't know how I could ever choose only one that I love. I have many and enjoy listening to them frequently. I will tell you a story that I am sure you will appreciate. I work with cancer patients in a Radiation Oncology department. At a large university center where I used to work we often treated prisoners from the nearby Federal Prison. I would always play one of your CD's during a long session that would require the patient to be relaxed and still. My favorite at that time was the Celtic music. The prisoners often commented that they had never heard that kind of music before and would ask what it was because they felt calm and soothed while listening to it. Me too!

without a doubt, Portuguese fado is my favorite world music-it's Iberian blues at its finest!
