Putumayo World Music


Putumayo World Music Putumayo World Music was established in 1993 to introduce people to the music of the world's cultures. Known primarily for its upbeat and melodic compilations of great international music (characterized by the company's motto: "guaranteed to make you feel good!"), Putumayo consistently presents some of the freshest and most interesting music in the world — music often very difficult to discover except through their CDs.

Take a listen — we have sounds samples for most every track on every disc. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
