I'll be celebrating it by actually watching and keeping track of what's happening with the various teams. May listen to some Johnny Clegg & Savuka. Then of course there's always Hugh Masekala.

I will no doubt be listening to my seven-year-old son try to blow the vuvuzela that my brother-in-law brought back for him from South Africa several weeks ago, whilst we watch the game. It requires far more air than he seems to have, so I may be just watching him go round and round in circles, trying to blow into it with hugely puffed cheeks! We love Putamayo CDs. They are our car traveling music! Would love to win a few CDs. That would be awesome.

This song is excellent. Makes me want to visit South Africa terribly... though I always have had this desire! South Africa... the most beautiful words to my ears.

Wow! The song sets the mood of celebration. This is the first World Cup on African soil!!! When I watch the games, I will have a smile on my face, and joy in my heart. The stadium will be a big melting pot of diverse people and cultures. I am so happy that Nelson Mandela is alive to witness this historic moment.

I hope that fifa is smart enough to unite South Africa & Africa to come facing the world to say: "Now I'm here too". I'm sure this event will succeed when nobody left behind and to sing together.

I already own a copy of Putumayo’s African Odyssey CD which I love. The rhythmic flow of this wonderful music clip has me already wanting more! I will definitely purchase this CD. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the song clip--we really enjoyed it! Our family is planning to watch some of the games and of course that always involves food! Putumayo albums are a great resource--I use the World Passport Curriculum in mu music classes and my my students love it. Will look forward to adding this album to the unit. Thanks!

Having been a veteran camper at a few World Music Festivals in Grass Valley, I have enjoyed Putumayo World Music CDs for a while now. I'll be celebrating the World Cup listening to Mirium Makeba's Pata Pata 2000. I'll be reliving the electrifying and tearful joy that spread through the World Music Festival audience as Mirium Makeba took to the stage to sing Pata Pata to celebrate finally being able to return to South Africa.

I love this music, it makes me want to gather friends and share good food and stories. I also love soccer, I coached high school soccer for 15 years and I follow the USA teams when I can. GO USA.

Although I am not a huge soccer fan, I am so excited that the World Cup is in Africa for the first time. I am listening to African music and eating lentils and curry.

I'll be celebrating the world cup by trying various foods from countries all over the world. If I can find some food that's new to me, I'll give it a shot, and see how I like it! Thankfully, Whole Foods has a great selection in their food bars! I'll also be watching the World Cup at various venues around town, of course!

We'll celebrate Fathers Day with a World Cup party for the entire family: menu baed on South African foods; multi-cultural/multi-national penants; and of course, Putumayo's South Africa! My birthday and a couple of anniversaries will also be thrown in--a grand time for everyone! Ann Byrne
