I love my putomayo cd's! Cannot live without them. They transport me to the different countries where the artists are from.

I have several cds from the Putumayo collection. I look forward to listening to this one. The world cup being played in South Africa is fantastic! I know the countrymen are proud that something this big is happening in a place that has been long regarded as the arm pit of modern civilation. Mandela rocks!!!

Love Putumayo Collections. The music is so invigorating, joyful and plainly enjoyable! I just watched Invictus today and realized how much of the culture and life of a country music is. African music and all world music can heal the soul...

I have been having open conversations with people from all over the country over this event and the rules of the cup playoffs which I didn't understand the "ties" until I asked and I am thrilled that it is in S. Africa and would love to share the music with my musical family

Great music - thanks for sharing! We have many Putumayo CDs, specifically for kids, and our family (including two young ones) loves them all. We look forward to introducing our boys to the World Cup as we have world music.

By playing soccer with my son, and buying him a new soccer jersey! He's crazy about playing soccer (he's 4)! We also LOVE music. We go to many free concerts in the Santa Cruz area. My son has been wanting the Putamayo South African CD-it would be so cool to win the set!!! I love African music.

Hurrah for South Africa, soccer, and Putumayo music! Check out Acoustic Africa too - unbelievable - perfect to wake up to, or relax with and everything in between.

I will be celebrating the World Cup in South Africa with the rest of the world...it's amazing to think a game can cross all racial, social, economical barriers...just like music and art like this does every day across the world. What a beautiful thing to see every color of the rainbow in the stands and on the field! And to think, I don't really even like soccer! LOL

Our family enjoys watching the world cup together! We love all things international and while watching international teams play or listening to international music, we imagine being in the country and make sure we learn something new about that country(ies). Thank you for this opportunity!

I plan on watching the World Cup at a local pub, George and Dragon in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. I am a big fan of World Music as well as a soccer fan and played the sport when I was a teenager in High School. I liked the music on the download and would love to have the collection. Thank you!

What a wonderful exposure to the sounds of Africa. So many of us think of black music as rap. Or some might go so far as to "crap". Well, these ole ears really enjoyed this true example of music from so far away. Thanks!

Putumayo music has been a big part of my musical CD collection. Always interesting, music and musicians I might never have heard except for these carefully selected recordings, thank you.

This song is great! I would love to listen to songs like this while cleaning, cooking, or even just relaxing. I am trying to get a glimpse of The World Cup any moment I can!

I enjoy international music and have many of the Putamayo CDs. I'm enjoying the World Cup with friends, food, music, and fun. Thanks for this opportunity.

Music, just like the World Cup soccer now and Mandela's inspiration in the Rugby World Cup of '95, has that magic ability to unify people, bringing together those of all different backgrounds to share in a moment, and hopefully those moments grow & grow...

I am teaching college students this summer and I love to use the Putuamayo Music before each class. About ten minutes before our class begins I pop one of the CDs into my computer and begin to play. Gradually people quiet down and listen. It is a great way to calm down the students and to get them to focus on the tasks at hand. Invariably someone asks me, where did you get that cool music?

Celebrating with family and friends. My husband is from Chile, and his whole family is so excited that they are in the World Cup once again!! My family is of German descent, they have always been my world cup team, with the USA a close second. The World Cup is a wonderful global celebration of so many different nations and something we all have in common - soccer (futbol!)

Even though I'm not much of a sports fan, I do love parties. And music. Especially world music. Watching soccer makes everyone want to celebrate, even if their team isn't winning. So thats what I'll be doing. Celebrating. Listening to music. Watching soccer. And perhaps a little dancing after someone scores a goal ;)

our parents were collecting international music before WWII.Dad's last purchase was a Crosby LP player for the collection. I inherited Robeson (Spanish, Russian, Yiddish, etc.); Bikel (at least 12 languages), Gooding (up to 16), Marais & Miranda (Afrikaans, etc.)-you get the picture. As a result when we visited Montreal, French was just another way of communicating (rather than a FOREIGN language) Technically this might be called immersion, but considering the prevalence of iPods, World Music has a phenomenal opportunity for cultural enrichment which tends to break down barriers. Our favorite Putamayo CD has 'the golden peacock' which it would have been wonderful to hear our grandparents sing. Last World Cup we were traveling on a Friday afternoon & watching shops close because customers were detracting from the TV. Our daughter plays soccer so we need to watch silently (with Superbowl quantities of 'nourishment'. Wish recipes came with the CD's
