It's because of Putamayo that I first learned about Angelique Kidjo, an incredibly talented lyricist and vocalist from Benin. I heard her initially on an sampler CD highlighting musicians from Africa as I volunteered at a local Fair Trade store. It was that one song which launched a collection of her CD's and a bucket dream came to fruition: to see her in concert. She preceeded Santana about 6 years ago at an outdoor concert. The music venue is now defunct, however memories of that evening still live on in my heart. Thank you Putamayo!

For Blues/Rock, I LOVE anything by Joe Bonamassa, an incredibly talented guitarist/writer. For pure vocal beauty, I love Alison Krauss.

I'm old school -- I like Bob Dylan's stuff from the early sixties! If you haven't listened to it recently, it's amazingly fresh and relevant!

Tuck and Patty, John Denver, Tracy Chapman, Paul Simon, Norah Jones, and Erykah Badu -- How's that for an eclectic mix?! -- Such different styles and yet each one can take me to another place!

My current favorite singer songwriter is Rose Cousins. She is Canadian, having grown up on Prince Edward Island, in the Maritimes. Her first album, "If You Were For Me" is as close to a perfect collection of songs, perfectly produced and performed, as one could possibly hope for. Well worth a listen.

I am a big Putumayo fan, so many great artists from all over the world that I wouldn't have had chance to hear otherwise! To choose one of my fav. artists is hard but i have to say Souad Massi is a big favorite with me.

It's gotta be the original: Mr. Bob Dylan himself!

My favorite singer/songwriter is hearthrob Benois. He has programs aired on PBS and is a world class artist in the domain of World Music. Benois is a "movement person" and does a great deal for social justice and global peacemaking. Plus he is Lord Sexitude, His Holy Hotness - easy on the eyes and lovely, celestial World Music.

I have loved Puntumayo music for years. Looking forward to some new stuff! My favorite singer/songwriter is Michael Ripoll. His guitar playing is incredible. He has Cuban and Italian roots which comes out in his style.

Personally, I'm partial to Dan Bern when it comes to Singer/Songwriters. He can swing from biting to hilarously funny to dead serious from one song to the next.
