Music and sports don't need words because they go directly to the heart.

After the US has a huge upset and wins the World Cup, I will resist the temptation to throw my 2 month old child in the air, I will kiss my wife, and run out into the street shouting "U-S-A, U-S-A!" Then I will probably do some traditional African dancing. A Putamayo World Music Collection would sure help that last part a lot...

Some of my earliest memories of being introduced to Putumayo was through daily excerpts played at my local Public Radio station. And that was close to 20 years ago. I have been an avid follower of it ever since. Thank you.

I only care about sports during certain key times: the Olympics, the Super Bowl, and the World Cup. How am I celebrating? By watching the game and bonding with my mom (yes, my mom) over our love of the occasion!

A quick and inexpensive way for a "mind -traveller" to explore exotic and beautiful destinations. I've worn a groove in my cd of the music of Northern Africa. I've always wanted to go there and this way I can!...without a passport. Yet, seriously, some really fantastic music to have in anyones collection. Sybil

I am not a sports fan until the important games. The World Cup is awesome to watch when you are neutral. It is funny how music can be heard in everything. Even during the World Cup. You hear the screams and the awesome sound of the wonderful horns which were almost banned. That would not have been cool at all. Thank you for the wonderful download. If anyone could see my Pandora account they would know that I am a lover of music no matter what genre it is. I truly believe that music is our World Cup, don't mean to sound cheesy.

We love the World Cup. We’ll be celebrating every day with food, fun and friends. And, yes, music will be part of it. We’ll be glued to the TV cheering on our favorite teams - USA & Serbia! We love international music and play it every day! I have been international folk dancing for 45 years! My husband is a musician and plays Serbian string instruments (tamburitzas). We would be honored to win this set! Thank you so much for the FREE download! It's awesome!

Money and time constraints keep me from visiting many places but music transcends and communicates in such a way that nothing else compares. I love different cultures, especially people,food, and music. this CD delivers two out of three; how can you beat that, short of going there?! On a much somber note, my prayers go out to Nelson Mandela and his family on the loss of his 13 year old grandaughter who was killed in a car accident leaving one of the games.

I'm currently enjoying the World cup from Bolivia! Super 'fútbol' or soccer country with devoted fans everywhere. And it's true that the music we are hearing from Africa throughout the games is adding a unique and enjoyable air to the whole event. Now onwards to the finals!!

In 1996 I had the great good fortune to spend weeks in Ghana on a Fulbright study of the cultures. I will NEVER forget the drums! As a school principal, I make sure we introduce the wonderful African cultures to all our students yearly...including their MUSIC!!

I have been looking at the World Cup on tv and it is most interesting to watch...I feel as though, I'm there in the stands blowing my horn..instead I'm in my big easy chair, blowing my own horn.

The grandkids and I experienced the Putumayo's CD's at the Science Center just a few months ago.It's great news that you also carry this wonderful line of International Music. Congratulations on tying it into the "World "Cup" Music"

I went to West Africa over 9 years ago to visit my sister who was a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal. I travelled to over 7 countries in AFrica by myself. The highlight of my trip was spending my 26th birthday at a Jackson Brown, Bonnie Raite, Oumou Sangra and Habite Koite show in Bamako, Mali. This show was sponsored by Putumayo. I loved the music! I love Africa. Watching the World Cup reminds me of the people, the music and the passion of Africa!

I love putamayo's collections of music. Not only do I listen to them regularly for personal enjoyment, but I also play them for professional use to expose my reflexology clients to new sounds and help them relax during "their" time in my chair. Thanks for years of great music!
