I loved reading about the inception of Putumayo. You have lived my dream life. Anytime I see the words living in New Orleans my eyes perk up. I own several of the CD's. I cannot say what is my favorite series but I do tend to lean toward the blues. I love world music so just about everything I have heard pleases my senses. I travel to Lafayette every year for the Internationale Fest just for the music and bands that I get to hear in one place! I also love Whole Foods. I have purchased many items there from World of Good and totally support all efforts to help those who struggle in this world! Thank you

My family loves African Playground. When the kids need some fun, indoor active time, I put it on and we dance our hearts out!

I can't think of any better music. I have a number of Putumayo cds. My favorites are the New Orleans and Zydeco compilations. They are always playing on my ipod or my home stereo. Fantastic music!!

Thanks for making these wonderful CDs (and for packing them in the mostly paper) If I have to pick it's One World Many Cultures for my favorite CD, New Orleans Christmas is a close second. Dreamland is one of my favorite gifts to all the new moms that we know, and we adults love it too. It was fun reading your story.

My favorite is the Putumayo - Celtic Tides and Women of the World! They are uplifting and I never get tired of listening.

Having managed a fair trade store where we sold your wonderful CDs, I have about 12 of them and I have to say my current favorite is African Playground. My 2-year-old son and I dance to the songs in our living room every morning and my husband, who's Ethiopian, really appreciates the song from his native land. Thank you for the vast array of children's CDs, and for representing so many cultures!

My favorite Putumayo CD is "Latin Lounge". I can't tell you how much pleasure it brings me every time I hear it whether in my car or at home (where I am apt to dance around the house as I listen). Fantastic!

French Caribbean is a favorite, but CAN'T WAIT for the Rhythm & Blues CD! Having grown up near New Orleans, blues music brings back a lot of special memories. Thanks for doing a great job!

Celtic Tides is my favorite Putumayo CD. When I was in college, our dance instructor would allow us to choreograph to this music.I remember it being such an incredible experience being on stage and bringing a group of strangers together in unity.

The Putamayo world music series is great! I have several which I play all the time: in my car, in my home, in my yoga classes. THe songs transport me to other cultures and exotic places. Even if I can't go to these places, I can get the flavor by listening to the CDs. It is difficult to favorite! Maybe "Women of the World" - or possibly "American Blues" - or, or, or........ Claire

Love them all, and it is so hard to select one...One World is the one that I listen to the most. I have been having a great time turning my friends on to the music.

It is because of the Putomayo CDs that I mastered my 2nd CD with Emily Lazar at The Lodge in NY, the same place Putomayo uses. The sound quality is spectacular, something we musicians value greatly. I own a few African CDs (including the one with all women which I LOVE), blues series, and bought the kid blues one for my nephew (love Taj Mahal!). Thank you for the sounds!

Artist mentioned are often listened to as well. Manhatten Transfer is in the number one place with Diana Krall right behind them. Album artwork (happy colors and composite super) is eye catching and brought me to write a blib. Look forward to the album and continuing treks through Whole Food stores wherever I might be... thank you for this opportunity.

I must have about 10 Putumayo CDs and often give them as gifts. They are terrific! My favorite type of music is "world" and "roots." Putumayo sure knows how to make both obscure and better known music genres available to us in "mainstream" America! Keep up the great work!!!!

I have listened to Putumayo music on 91.9 WFPK, Louisville KY for years on World Cafe 6-8 p.m. M-F. Reminds me of my many travels to Mexico, Central & South America. Awesome music!
