We'll be dancing in the streets and kicking soccer balls around the house to celebrate the world cup...we love playing Putumayo's New Orleans Playground and dancing around the house and singing along with Kermit Ruffin's "if i had a million dollars".... so we'll dance like we had a million dollars and a million soccer balls!

I have your Jamaica album, and it contains some of the greatest, rarely played reggae classics. I'm looking forward to hearing your South Africa album - I'm watching the "Baffana Baffana" play Uruguay as I write this...

I have watched some of the World Cup, but those dreaded horns have forced me to mute my TV and listen to music, currently I have Paul Simon's Graceland in my CD player. This five CD Putumayo Africa collection would be a god send!!! Love the play, not too crazy about all the noise!!!

We're going to celebrate the World Cup with all kinds of world music. My kids also like to make flags for the countries they watch play soccer; then we make a flag display on our front table. We're also loving the Putumayo New Orleans music - we remember our friends struggling with the oil spill as we listen.

I was very happy to see USA go to the World Cup, and it has been very interesting to see the ways all the fans come together to support their countries. The variety of ways and diversity shown has been fun to watch!

My husband is a big soccer fan, so he'll be watching as much as he can. We love Putomayo Kids' Sesame Street Playground CD, and we'd love to branch out with this set!

I have several of the Putumayo collection of music and already own many of their CDs and it's always a pleasure to listen to them. I have been to South Africa back in 2004, visiting Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. It was a trip of a lifetime and I would encourage anyone who is thinking of going to do so! The sights, people and food were above my expectations.

South Africa - indeed all of Africa - is in the spotlight, thanks to the World Cup. This Putumayo CD provides the soundtrack. Wish I had a vuvuzuela to play along.

We are watching and rooting for countries we have never visited! My roommate and I are training with the couch to 5k program. We are now inspired to add some indoor soccer to our new exercise routines. We could work out and run to Africa mix!

I was celebrating with great food, my dear friends and new grand-nieces (twins!!!) and of course, laughter and music. It was an incredible day for the entire family.

I am a big fan of world music and Putumayo is a great label. I've listened to many of their compilation CDs from the local library. They have a keen ability to select good representative recordings that provide an excellent taste of each culture's music. One way I will be celebrating the 2010 World Cup is by listening to the Spin the Globe world music podcast from KOAS Seattle, WA. The most recent episode was actually a selection of World Cup and soccer themed songs.

I'm a soccer fan and a world music fan. It would be cool to have this CD collection to play during World Cup month!

I think the World Cup is a great celebration every four years. Getting the world nations together is great for world peace. I love any type of music, but I feel international music brings everyone together and pulls down the walls.

I will be celebrating world cup by teaching my children about their African heritage. My two sons' father is from Ghana; lots of great music there. Their uncle is from Guinea; lots of great music, drumming and dance there. And, one of my favorite songs is from a Putumaya CD.

I LOVE Putumayo world music, so this is perfect for the World Cup. Every CD is fabulous, you can't go wrong. And the pricing at Whole Foods is the best out there, so no need to shop around. Cheers...
