Wow this download is awesome! As it turns out, I'm part of a CD club and my month is coming up and I'm going to include this song. I'm not much of a sports fan these days so I probably won't be watching the World Cup. Nevertheless, this music is amazing and I'd love a chance to win the set!

I will celebrate the World Cup by watching every single game, cooking some themed food from some of the countries represented (Of course using Whole Foods ingredients !). And by doing some volunteer work at a community garden in Riverside.

We too will be cooking some organic party food for the game. I remember how difficult it was to find world music. Musical Starstreams (radio show)would play some in the early 80's so that got me hooked. I will be rocking out in my chair while the game is on or anytime I hear something as good as this.

I'm 14 years old and just started listening to Reggae music. I found an African Reggae CD at Whole Foods and just listened to it - I really like that the lyrics are in different languages so that I can pay more attention to the music and not get caught up on the words. The lyrics are more like another instrument. I like that the songs were more mellow than Jamaican Reggae. I just got back from a school trip in Costa Rice and the African music reminds me of there. It would be really cool to win the 5 CDS, 'cause I don't have enough money to buy them all. If I'm too young to win, you could send them to my mom, Ann Gerard. Oh, by the way, I do plan to watch some of the World Cup. It seems more like a country competing, not just a team wanting a paycheck. It's really cool that it is in South Africa.

I've been listening to Putumayo music for years - the World Cup CD is another way to celebrate the amazing beauty and variety of world music. Bravo!

I am hoping to watch some of the semi-final and final games of the World Cup. A friend is recording them for me. I probably won't listen to music, but I do have some of Ladysmith Black Mambazo's music and enjoy listening to it occasionaly. I also enjoy the song they did on one of the Josh Groban albums.

Music is such an education! I have just about all of Putumayos CD's. Its what I listen to while at work. I feel transported to the lands that are being played.And, in the heat of summer, what can be better to listen to,but music from the tropics, or dessert, or equator countries!. And, yes, World cup, like this music is the real meaning of 'global'. Thank you!

Love the beat. And the strings felt like an internal tune-up.

Lovely music! ...and as for the World Cup, my favorite moments are when the children walk in with the teams.I love watching the players as their anthems are played and the exchange of pennants at the coin toss.Even though South Africa lost today, I could see the opposing team players exchanging shirts..... and yes! some exciting soccer too! ;)

I'm watching African movies right now: Hotel Rwanda, The #1 Ladies Detective Agency, The World Unseen, Invictus... I did watch part of the Brit/US game over the weekend...not really 'that' African ;^). Cheers, Amy

Love world music and Putumayo's one of the best! I'm usually not into the World Cup, but this year caught a game at a Portland "soccer bar" and had the best time!

Thanks for the download ... Putamayo CDs are awesome! ... I'll be watching the World Cup matches at my favorite local Micro Brewery, drinking my favorite hopped beer, with my daughter and friends having a homemade root beer ice cream float. World Cup, your favorite beverage and Putamayo music ... a great combination.

I studied abroad in Cameroon, so I'm supporting them in the Cup. Off to a bad start (lost 1-0 to Japan), but watching the games makes me super nostalgic for the Africa Cup games I watched while I was there. Music was a huge part of it. I can still sing the songs that came on during the commercials during the Africa Cup! (But they were good.)

Great beat, had me dancing in my seat. I'm celebrating the World Cup by catching glimpses of the games when I can. I imagine that I'm coaching a World Cup game as I coach my under six team. Soccer is such fun! Or should I say Football. :-)

Having been to SA in the later 1990's - everything SA is a magnet for me (food, music, art, culture), I also have two sons who play soccer and have been interested in the matches. The Putumayo music has always had a spot on my shelf and players - would love to add more!

The student union building at my university has set up a huge television projector screen on which each and every world cup game is being shown live. My regular "coffee break" from my lab has turned into a "run down to the student union to watch a few minutes of the game" break!

Putumayo recordings are refreshingly diverse. No need to worry about feeding the wallets of already-rich pop stars. Putumayo is traveling the world helping to discover the undiscovered! Thanks. Bonnie

I will be celebrating with music, vegetarian Lentil Bobotie, dancing and by yelling "Goooooooooooooal!" whenever possible!
