Love the beat. And the strings felt like an internal tune-up.

Lovely music! ...and as for the World Cup, my favorite moments are when the children walk in with the teams.I love watching the players as their anthems are played and the exchange of pennants at the coin toss.Even though South Africa lost today, I could see the opposing team players exchanging shirts..... and yes! some exciting soccer too! ;)

I'm watching African movies right now: Hotel Rwanda, The #1 Ladies Detective Agency, The World Unseen, Invictus... I did watch part of the Brit/US game over the weekend...not really 'that' African ;^). Cheers, Amy

Love world music and Putumayo's one of the best! I'm usually not into the World Cup, but this year caught a game at a Portland "soccer bar" and had the best time!

Thanks for the download ... Putamayo CDs are awesome! ... I'll be watching the World Cup matches at my favorite local Micro Brewery, drinking my favorite hopped beer, with my daughter and friends having a homemade root beer ice cream float. World Cup, your favorite beverage and Putamayo music ... a great combination.

I studied abroad in Cameroon, so I'm supporting them in the Cup. Off to a bad start (lost 1-0 to Japan), but watching the games makes me super nostalgic for the Africa Cup games I watched while I was there. Music was a huge part of it. I can still sing the songs that came on during the commercials during the Africa Cup! (But they were good.)

Great beat, had me dancing in my seat. I'm celebrating the World Cup by catching glimpses of the games when I can. I imagine that I'm coaching a World Cup game as I coach my under six team. Soccer is such fun! Or should I say Football. :-)

Having been to SA in the later 1990's - everything SA is a magnet for me (food, music, art, culture), I also have two sons who play soccer and have been interested in the matches. The Putumayo music has always had a spot on my shelf and players - would love to add more!

The student union building at my university has set up a huge television projector screen on which each and every world cup game is being shown live. My regular "coffee break" from my lab has turned into a "run down to the student union to watch a few minutes of the game" break!

Putumayo recordings are refreshingly diverse. No need to worry about feeding the wallets of already-rich pop stars. Putumayo is traveling the world helping to discover the undiscovered! Thanks. Bonnie

I love my putomayo cd's! Cannot live without them. They transport me to the different countries where the artists are from.

I have several cds from the Putumayo collection. I look forward to listening to this one. The world cup being played in South Africa is fantastic! I know the countrymen are proud that something this big is happening in a place that has been long regarded as the arm pit of modern civilation. Mandela rocks!!!

Love Putumayo Collections. The music is so invigorating, joyful and plainly enjoyable! I just watched Invictus today and realized how much of the culture and life of a country music is. African music and all world music can heal the soul...

I have been having open conversations with people from all over the country over this event and the rules of the cup playoffs which I didn't understand the "ties" until I asked and I am thrilled that it is in S. Africa and would love to share the music with my musical family

Great music - thanks for sharing! We have many Putumayo CDs, specifically for kids, and our family (including two young ones) loves them all. We look forward to introducing our boys to the World Cup as we have world music.
