Thus music will really grab you and pull you in! If it doesn't make your muscles or your feet move, you need to play it louder!

I have a number of Putumayo CDs. They are all great and wonderful mood boosters.

I love latin music! It is food for my soul as well as dancing to it! I've had 3 holidays in Brazil and spent half of them dancing to happy, lively music with such a rhythm that makes you smile!

I am from Brazil and music is a part of me,especially this time of year when I am reminded so much of home. Music is significant in my life and I have music playing when I cook, when I clean and when I workout. Music transcends time and motion; it is a state of mind, making life effortless and eternal. Viva Brasil!

Winter in Texas is one of the only times of year it's cool enough to catch our family bursting into spontaneous dance!!! We play online music we find for each other as well as our in house favorites and end up always in crazy laughing dance sets! We all love world music & each has a specialty that we share with each other. These seem to occur especially on the coldest winter nights while we wait for something to come out of the oven - so it's a double hot time in the house! enjoi les musiques!

I love to warm up my winter with music! The season starts with Christmas music warming up the winter and preparing for the holidays. Then, music keeps my warm while I am working off all of those holiday treats :).

We love Buena Vista Social Club. Since moving from balmy Key West, FL to Colorado - we really miss the lively latin music that was so prevalent in the Keys. Listening to those old CD's takes us back to our island life.

I listen to music that makes me feel nostalgic....something that brings back memories from college or growing up in a small town. It may be cold outside in the winter, but doing that warms me up on the inside.

Brazilian music is stimulating and delightful to listen to and move to and helps keep me younger than my years.

My two daughters (8 and 3 years old) and I warm up with music while cleaning our home. We have fun by creating dance moves and being silly. Music is a great part of our lives.

You can dance through all your cooking, cleaning and laundry with this kind of music that keeps you moving. It has a joy and a beat that sufuses a body with warmth and joy.

My family starts every Sunday with great pastries, delicious coffee, and the energizing beats of international music. From south America to eastern Europe, we listen to it all!

In the sometimes harsh MA winter, there's whole-some food and music to warm your soul (besides a heater). Music is a perfect accompaniment to good food and good company. I got introduced to World Music accidentally, when a friend sent a CD with mixed world music. I liked Bossa Nova and latino upbeat rhythm and a certain 'je ne said quoi' spice, it made a lasting impression and became a part of those times when you need something peppy to lift your soul.

Putumayo is a wonderful to explore creative sounds from around the world. Armchair excursions via great music.

Percussion is the core, the soul, the foundation of most folk culture's music. This resonates thru our souls when listening to Brazilian music. The African beat, percussion experience guides us to feel as we listen. My body naturally moves when the sounds resonate the air. I love it.

We love Putamayo CDs in our house and after seeing Rio, my son has been in love with samba and bossa nova. This would be a great addition to our collection. Thanks for the giveaway!

I've been listening to Brazilian music for 30 or so years, first introduced by Georges Collinet on Afropop Worldwide. Brazil has definitely got the idea when it comes to happy rhythms!

Listening to music in the winter lifts me up to a joyful mood. Therefore, making me more happy and not suffering from the winter blues.
