I am hosting a World Cup viewing party where everyone will wear their favorite team colors and I am going to serve foods from South Africa and of course lots of music!

Ever since visiting my daughter in Togo, West Africa, when she was in Peace Corps, I have been an avid fan of African music from all areas of Africa. This one is different from anything I have, and it would be a pleasure for me to give it to her as a gift.

I love Putamayo albums, and buy them for every baby shower and child's birthday. The lounge series is usually the background music for my parties as well!

Let's go Bafana! Just kidding - I'll be cheering for team USA no matter how good the African music might be!

I'm thrilled to watch the world cup shine a light on an aparthied-free South Africa. I'll be celebrating watching the games with a few blasts on a vuvuzela (Annoying, yes, but the sound of joy!) and getting the neighborhood together for backyard soccer games complete with tripping toddlers, dogs and milk-crate goals in the cool evening breeze. Thank you Putomayo, for perfect mixes to introduce us to world music.

I have been enjoying watching the World Cup games at friends' houses or watching it on the big screen in the cafe at my work! It has been very exciting to pick and team and cheer for them.

I'm more interested in international music than in sports, honestly. But I like that soccer/football is such a beloved sport all over the world.

I rejoice that in a short 20 years S. Africa has gone from being banned from international sports competition to hosting one of the Family of Nation's very biggest events. Hooray! And maybe Team USA will stay in for a couple of rounds? And Putumayo Africa - what a way to celebrate!

We have two of the other Putumayo's CDs and the whole family enjoys them. I like how they are joyful and lighthearted. We are big European football fans with season tickets to our local Seattle Sounders, so will of course be watching the World Cup. We are enjoying watching the matches from the comfort of our big screen tv at home. Popcorn and lots of beverages help with all the cheering and shouting (my husband) will be doing. Go Team USA!

Not only are the South African CDs terrific, (just heard them for the 1st time here) but so are their other collections. I have several including the Carribbean series and would recommend all of them to everyone.

Thank you for the beautiful music download, and the information here is educational. I first saw Putumayo World Music CDs in the library, I was immediately attracted by the artwork, and I love Africa Music. I love “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, I did not know its Africa root until now. I also would recommend the sound track of the movie “The Constant Gardener”, original music composed by Alberto Iglesias. The movie was filmed in Africa. The music fits African landscape beautifully. I don't follow Scoccer as I did when I was younger, but Congratulations to Africa for the World Cup! Thank you Wholefoods, for sharing the world music and international themes in the community and in your stores. I would love to win the CDs.

This was my first chance to hear their music. Very nice. I would love to win a cd and will check out their music in the future. Any games on the tv that bring together world teams is so good for all of us.

This music is so perfect for so many different occasions: picnics, parties, study sessions, homework, housework, etc. Excited for the South Africa CD!

We look forward to the World Cup with as much anticipation as the Olympics. We will be tuned in to each play for the full 90 minutes and after it is over we will feast, listen to music and enjoy our hopeful victory.

What wonderful African music to represent the World Cup this year! And even better that purchasing this cd benefits Artist for a New South Africa! My father has visited South Africa recently and absolultely LOVED it. Maybe someday I will have the chance to travel to South Africa as well to enjoy the rich culture, diversity, and music up close and in person!
