I love world music and really enjoy the Putumayo collection. I own a few of the CDs and particularly like the Acoustic Arabia. I usually play the one that creates the ambience for the type of food I'm cooking. My college-aged daughter is a huge fan of the World Cup and we've been watching and rooting for our favorite team(s). This download is a great one and I would love to add the Africa set to expand my collection.

I will dance around my kitchen as I make up snacks for my family to enjoy while watching the games, using local ingredients and lots of passion!

I think of the World Cup like I do the Olympics. Even though soccer isn't as popular in the US, it is a time to really be proud of our country and the freedom we stand for. Plus it is a time to embrace other cultures since we do live in one big global community. Music is a great way to unite people!

Listening to the Putumayo African collection would be a great addition to the ambiance of our World Cup experience. Kids are glued to the TV as they love playing soccer!

Putumayo music is just incredible. My 2 year old baby-girl dances to it and my 78 year old aunt dances to it. I love Putumayo music, a great cup of coffee - ahhhh, pure bliss!

I love Putumayo World Music. I began listening to it when I was living in New York. Having lived in West Africa, listening to the music always brings back very pleasant memories of that time in my life. I also love how buying their music gives money toward a good cause. I would love to win this set because I would play the music ALL THE TIME!!!

As I have recovered over the years from several surgeries, I have been fortunate to listen to the World Music release by Putumayo. This is a great experience and would really enjoy the opportunity to hear the World Cup Music.

This is the first World Cup that I have ever paid attention to....(and I have been around awhile)I have decided to become more worldly about Sports due to my future ESL career so that I can connect with many of my students.

Well, I celebrate the World Cup with strong cup of coffee (at least the next day at work). I remember when South Africa won the bid for the 2010 World Cup, the country was absolutely jubilant. Let's hope that some of the World Cup money will help continue the rebuilding of the rainbow nation. Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika!

My fiance and I are lucky enough to work at a company that has a flat-screen TV in our "break room," complete with comfy couches and a coffee maker. We've been sneaking away with other coworkers to watch games. It's a great experience! I've been a HUGE FAN of Putumayo for years, and I'm always thrilled to listen to new albums!

Love the World Cup, Love football... or soccer as they call it here in the states. Enjoying "Watch the Games" parties w fun & funky themed appetizers featuring each country's specialties... people LOVE trying out new goodies!!! Putamayo music is downloaded on my IPOD when I run... I dance down the trails... rock the miles away to sometimes Calypso, sometimes reggae, sometimes.. you get the idea...

Love the Putomayo CD's especially the way they are recorded. The sound is so rich. Ialso love the way the CD's transport you to another place even if you've never been there.

I love soccer! I used to play when I was younger and even now I love to watch professional soccer players' fancy foot work and talent. It never ceases to amaze me what they can do with their feet! I don't have a preference who wins, but I love that it brings so many people together to root for their own country. I remember being in Europe during a World Cup and hearing all the surrounding people watching, cheering, celebrating. It is like a huge cheerleading event for each country!

I've been really enjoying watching the game in restaurants and bars where people from all over can gather together. It's so nice to be able to share the experience, even with everyone cheering for different teams.

The pictures from the opening ceremony blew me away! I'm meeting friends over lunch during the week to watch the games - and always listen to international music to bring the global world to my everyday routine.
