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!

Wow this download is awesome! As it turns out, I'm part of a CD club and my month is coming up and I'm going to include this song. I'm not much of a sports fan these days so I probably won't be watching the World Cup. Nevertheless, this music is amazing and I'd love a chance to win the set!

I will celebrate the World Cup by watching every single game, cooking some themed food from some of the countries represented (Of course using Whole Foods ingredients !). And by doing some volunteer work at a community garden in Riverside.

We too will be cooking some organic party food for the game. I remember how difficult it was to find world music. Musical Starstreams (radio show)would play some in the early 80's so that got me hooked. I will be rocking out in my chair while the game is on or anytime I hear something as good as this.

I'm 14 years old and just started listening to Reggae music. I found an African Reggae CD at Whole Foods and just listened to it - I really like that the lyrics are in different languages so that I can pay more attention to the music and not get caught up on the words. The lyrics are more like another instrument. I like that the songs were more mellow than Jamaican Reggae. I just got back from a school trip in Costa Rice and the African music reminds me of there. It would be really cool to win the 5 CDS, 'cause I don't have enough money to buy them all. If I'm too young to win, you could send them to my mom, Ann Gerard. Oh, by the way, I do plan to watch some of the World Cup. It seems more like a country competing, not just a team wanting a paycheck. It's really cool that it is in South Africa.

I've been listening to Putumayo music for years - the World Cup CD is another way to celebrate the amazing beauty and variety of world music. Bravo!

I am hoping to watch some of the semi-final and final games of the World Cup. A friend is recording them for me. I probably won't listen to music, but I do have some of Ladysmith Black Mambazo's music and enjoy listening to it occasionaly. I also enjoy the song they did on one of the Josh Groban albums.

Music is such an education! I have just about all of Putumayos CD's. Its what I listen to while at work. I feel transported to the lands that are being played.And, in the heat of summer, what can be better to listen to,but music from the tropics, or dessert, or equator countries!. And, yes, World cup, like this music is the real meaning of 'global'. Thank you!
