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!

I have already collected most of the Putumayo Children's music as I'm a preschool teacher. I would like to start collecting some of this fine music for myself as well as my adult children. I've done my best to always introduce them to a wide variety of music and this CD would be a great addition to my collection. BTW, my brother is an avid soccer fan and I'm an avid music fan so who knows? :)

I celebrate the World Cup 2010 for several reasons. I demonstrated for Madiba's freedom for years in the U.S., all those years ago and to see how far South Africa has come in so little time is truly inspiring. Madiba truly showed the world the power of one. This World Cup 2010, newly heralded as recognition of the Rainbow Nation, is positive evidence of Madiba's ideas and those of several others from several nations, over a span of generations, that dreams can become reality. Because of my awareness of the plight of the South African people during apartheid, (capitalization refused), I naturally became familiar with African music, with which I fell in love. To date, it is my favorite. Sports and music know no cultural bounds, the other reasons I celebrate this World Cup. We all come together and celebrate our bonds and differences in a joyful manner. I celebrate the music and also celebrate those with the love of this sport.

I love their music very much. Thnx to Putumayo to compile this beautiful musics. South African music survive by apartheid regime by their militancy. in side they already (done) divided, it takes time to be reunite. Hope this huge event can fulfill the reunification, also to face for the good future of South Africans. FIFA too much profiteering from this event.

Its good to be exposed to more international music. I find I need to listen more than once, so the download was a good idea!

We'll be dancing in the streets and kicking soccer balls around the house to celebrate the world cup...we love playing Putumayo's New Orleans Playground and dancing around the house and singing along with Kermit Ruffin's "if i had a million dollars".... so we'll dance like we had a million dollars and a million soccer balls!

I have your Jamaica album, and it contains some of the greatest, rarely played reggae classics. I'm looking forward to hearing your South Africa album - I'm watching the "Baffana Baffana" play Uruguay as I write this...

I have watched some of the World Cup, but those dreaded horns have forced me to mute my TV and listen to music, currently I have Paul Simon's Graceland in my CD player. This five CD Putumayo Africa collection would be a god send!!! Love the play, not too crazy about all the noise!!!
