Our Team Members Rock! Listen, Vote and Win

I’ve been a music fan for as long as I can remember. It probably started when I bought The Four Tops Greatest Hits at age 8. Growing up playing the piano and violin made me appreciate the skill and talent of musicians even more.

Fast forward to today. Living in Austin – the “Live Music Capital of the World”– is perfect for me. In fact, you’ll find me at a show any day of the week.  It’s through these local shows that I have realized how many friends, family and coworkers are involved in music — and most outside of their regular “day jobs.”

So imagine how thrilled I was to find out that Whole Foods Market® is giving their talented team members an opportunity to let their music be heard. Out of hundreds of submissions, a panel of peers selected ten finalists in Raw and Unprocessed, Whole Foods Market’s Team Member Music Project.

Now it’s your turn. Your votes will decide the winner and take a team member from aisle 3 to superstardom! The winning band or musician will open for a VHI You Oughta Know artist in Napa Valley, California at Live in the Vineyard in November. You and a friend could be there, too!


Putumayo's Latest: Arabic Beat

Thanks to everyone who shared their favorite Arabic musician for a chance to win a CD set of Putumayo's Arabic Beat and Arabic Groove. Congratulations to Andrea Wolf who was our randomly chosen winner!

Read on for a chance to win a CD set of Putumayo’s Arabic-themed titles, available in most Whole Foods Market Stores. Dan Storper is the CEO and founder of Putumayo World Music.

Have you ever wandered the open-air markets in a North African or Middle Eastern city? The music that seems to radiate from the stores and stalls is infectious and prompts a search for the same music to enjoy in your own home.

Memories of a trip abroad can now live on with Putumayo’s newest release, Arabic Beat, a collection that chronicles the musical creativity of Arabic musicians today. The album revels in artists rarely heard in the West: the unsung stars and hit- makers who shape the region’s music.

Inspired by music from across the globe but true to Arabic music’s deep roots, the sounds of raï’s rolling funk and the shimmering pulse of raqs sharki (“belly dance” music) tell the story of a thriving contemporary scene that stretches across the breadth of the Mediterranean.
