I love World Cup soccer! I am so happy that a South African scored the first goal of the tournament. I have many favorite teams, from United States, Brazil, South Africa, Netherlands. We will play all sorts of music in honor of the matches. Thanks for the giveaway!!

I first heard the incredible selections offered by Putumayo at the Museum of Natural History's in New York's gift shop--they had headphones set up, and i was able to sample the various styles from all over the world. i have been a performer of World music for over 30 years now ( when there was no category for it!)---Keep up the good work! Go world cup!

Putmayo compilations are fantastic for dinner parties OR world cup parties! I also love picking out an artist and checking out their other songs.

Thanks for the free download. We will probably try some new recipe that showcases South African traditional cuisine and local vegetables.

I love watching the World Cup with my kids -- like Putumayo's music collections, it reminds of how much more there is to the world. We're celebrating today with watermelon :)

My 19 year old daughter is watching the world cup, so I watch too. I love Putumayo music and have being buying the CDs since they first came on the market. I love that Putumayo introduced us all to "world music" before it was fashionable!

We will be celebrating the world cup watching it as a family, my husband, 2 children and myself! Of course there will be music as there is always music when celebrating any event!

I would LOVE to see that recipe featured at Whole Food's website! I'm a fan of African food AND music, from tip to top of the continent.

I've seen these Putumayo cds in stores and always wondered what they were about. What I hear I like! I'm an international wine lover so for World Cup I'll try some new wines from other parts of the world so far untasted!

I will follow enough to see who wins in the end but my celebration will be low key. Maybe a juice pop.

I've been waiting for this for years! I'm traveling to England for my sister's graduation and we'll be watching the final game of the world cup somewhere in Croatia!!

We have enjoyed other Putumayo anthologies and are excited about the World Cup (which we get catch as catch can). I downloaded Bholoja’s “Mbombela” cut. It was lovely. We danced in the living room. My 8 year old soccer playing son thought it was great. Not only good for dancing, but the dog, who tired of dancing thought it made a perfect accompaniment for a belly rub.

Thanks for the music clip. I have always enjoyed all types of music but have to say Putamayo CDs are always the greatest! Somehow they always put together the perfect selection. Not much of a sports fan but I know my little Sister will watch every minute and let me know who, what, when and where. Hope I win!

I love the World Cup! Many years ago I watched Sheffield play the US and got to meet the players after the game. It was a fantastic time. Then and now, music has been such a big part of my life My husband and I loved listening to world and just a wide variety of music so much we opened our own small living room concert house. Now that we have a child, he is exposed to our varied palate, and has shown an interest in music himself at 2! I hope to win this set for him! Love the song!

Through music and soccer we are introducing our 5 year old son to cultures, sounds, rhythms, rhymes, names, colors, flags and faces that are different from our own. Fortunately for us, he loves music and soccer and so it's a beautiful match.

I will be celebrating with my own personal "vuvuzela" that I picked up in South Africa. This traditonal horn is blown at sports stadiums through out South Africa. Considering how this controversial(and some say extremely annoying) horn creates an ear splitting hum in the background at soccer matches - I think I will play it in the safety if my home when I am alone !!!!

I have a half dozen Putumayo CDs and I love them. The music is so uplifting -- I play it in my car all of the time. I got them all at Whole Foods, my favorite grocery store. The Denver Art Museum also carries them and plays them sometimes in one of the open spaces. I am a volunteer in the shop and always recommend them for gifts. Thanks for the new CD. Go Putumayo!
