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...

The South African music is just wonderful. I will be tuning into the Soccer World Cup games and hope I'll be able to pop in a CD while enjoying these great events.

I love the wonderfully festive music on the Putumayo African Collection. Altho I only got to listen to 3 min. It made me laugh, it made me dance. Eight years ago I would not have been able to do that. I was in a wheel chair and could not walk or dance. Now a good rythum makes me jofully dance around. I enjoy the three CDs that I own. I will be stopping in to buy this latest one as well. Thank you for the joyfull music that compeles me to dance. Deborah

I haven't heard the South Africa CD, but the Putamayo Brazilian Lounge CD has been one of my favorites for years!

Smooth and delicious, tappable rhythms. Even though I can't understand the words, I am enveloped by the joy of the song. It invoked a visual of rich watercolors splashing over strings and drums. Yummy!

I'll probably be watching with friends at any one of several busy bars that are showing the matches. Always fun to celebrate in a crowd!!
