Play the vuvuzela iPHone app while watching the teams I'm rooting for: USA & Brazil! :) I have a variety of Putumayo music already, but only one "African" theme - which is African Playground which I purchased for my 4-yr old son who is now also a World Cup fan. So we play this music very often during our errand runs! Love the spirit of the World Cup! Love WHole Foods of course!!

I am very excited about the World Cup and am getting together with friends to watch the games regularly! I hope that my city (Nashville) gets picked to host the World Cup Games as we are in the running for the future - I would love to receive these CD's to play in my Classroom as I am an ESL teacher with many African Students!

Celebrating with family and friends. My husband is from Chile, and his whole family is so excited that they are in the World Cup once again!! My family is of German descent, they have always been my world cup team, with the USA a close second. The World Cup is a wonderful global celebration of so many different nations and something we all have in common - soccer (futbol!)

I've been watching the World Cup soccer games on ESPN, it's fun to see all the international fans for the WC event. The South African theme music selected for the games represents South Africa in a beautiful way. I also really liked to see the soccer teams with the "end racism banners", another good theme for international games. Sports and music are a like an international language.

I am both a fan of international music and football. The World Cup is an exciting experience and I'm especially enjoying learning more about South Africa and the culture there through the coverage of the games.

We LOVE soccer and international music. It really gets me and the kids dancing and brightens our day (which is important since we've had almost 30 days of rain and it's the middle of June!) Thanks for the free download!!

ooo I really like this song! Def going to download it! I love the whole Putumayo collection of music and already own many of their CDs but NONE of the African ones! Would really make my day to win this awesome set! I do not watch sports on TV at all though, so I will not be doing anything to celebrate this event! Sorry! Hope this still counts!

I can't wait for the world cup to start! I'm planning on cooking the food of the country I'm rooting for at each match that I watch. Adds a bit more fun to the whole thing. I would love to listen to putamayo cds while I cook and after the game with my friends to hopefully celebrate our team's victory!

We LOVE the world cup. We'll be celebrating every day with food, dun and friends. And, yes, music will be part of it. Generally though, we'll be glued to the TV cheering on our favorite teams (USA all the way!).

I'm not a football (as in soccer) fan, but I love world music! I'd celebrate the World Cup listening to my African collection. I have two Angelique Kidjo albums, one by Kotoja (one of the first Putumayo albums), some Tinariwen (Malian blues rock) and Oliver Mtukudzi (from Zimbabwe). To celebrate the World Cup in South Africa, I'd celebrate with some African recipes from Marcus Samuelsson's "Discovery of a Continent" or Troth Wells' "World in Your Kitchen." South African bredie is a great vegetarian bean stew with potatoes, tomatoes, wine, and raisins. Of course, Samuelsson has celebratory dishes like chicken marinaded in rooibos tea or a spicy Mozambique fish stew. I'd be celebrating Africa!

Really liked the music. Going to stop by Whole Foods to take a look at the other albums. Plan on playing for my kids as we get ready to watch the World Cup.

My husband keeps me informed of the changes in status and the scores. I have not been fortunate enough to watch a match yet. I've been working too much! I plan to go to a local bar that features the matches with my husband soon and we shall wine n dine and dance to the music at the pub... all while watching the world cup!

My husband and I volunteered for 2 months in a township in South Africa in 2005. I'm celebrating the World Cup with some rooibos tea and wearing the jewelry I brought there. Thanks for the free download!

This is a great selection! I will pick one up next time I am in the store. Putumayo always puts together great collections! Based on the free download sample the rest of the CD is a sure bet and a very big GOAL ! Thanks. Bob

celebrating? i'm not a sports fan to being with, but even if i was...no, i'll be mourning for the animals that were ritually sacrificed to "bless" the stadium and events in the name of silly superstition.
