Editorial Reviews

All around the world, people know that the key to an unforgettable celebration is great music. Whether you live in Iceland or Italy, Tahiti or Timbuktu, music gets the party started and keeps it moving. Putumayo World Party is a feel-good music collection featuring some of the world's best-known dance rhythms, and is guaranteed to enliven any gathering.

The collection starts with the infectious brass of Roy Paci & Aretuska's "Ciuri Ciuri. Jamaican reggae legend Burning Spear sets a light and carefree mood with "Walk," while the Denmark-based Laid Back incorporates a bit of the Caribbean into their party anthem "Groovin' on a Feeling." To the east of Jamaica is Martinique, home of Jean-Philippe Marthely who offers his party-starter "Woté Mont".

The people of southwest Louisiana know how to have a good time and zydeco is their party music of choice. Beau Jocque was one of the kings of zydeco and "Just One Kiss" became an instant dance hit. Afro-pop legends Osibisa contribute 70's funk and soul to the party with "Sunshine Day," while L'Orchestre Tropicana d'Haiti provide a classic Haitian compas track. The multi-cultural Sarazino, with members from Algeria, Quebec and Ecuador, also keep up the energy with their dance track "Cochabamba."

Laurent Hounsavi may have been born in Benin and studied in Paris, but his song "Mind Se" is steeped in Afro-Cuban rhythms. The Argentine-born, LA-based Los Pinguos have infused ska into their Latin rhythms and harmonizing vocals on the lively "My Love."

A portion of Putumayo's proceeds from Putumayo World Party will be donated to Action Against Hunger, an international relief and development organization committed to saving the lives of malnourished children and families while providing sustainable access to safe water and long-term solutions to hunger.

The first song in this album is marvellous, while others just so so which is really a pity. I decided to buy it when I heard the first song but gave up afterwards.

Putumayo's "World Party" isn't so much an exploration of diverse world party music,but a rather forgettable compilation in the vein of the infamous Macarena. The opening song,Roy Paci's "Ciuri Cirui" is a joyful Italian dance,but it basically goes downhill from there. There are a few other highlights--infectious reggae from Burning Spear and Sarzino's "Cochabamba",which sounds like South African township music.

"World Party" serves best as background music,but it's like mild salsa. It lacks the zest. Osibisa's "Sunshine Day" is bland. The Zydeco Hi-Rollers' "Just One Kiss" is generic Creole,the musical equivalent of gumbo from a box. Jean-Paul Pognon's French salsa music is cheesy,con queso indeed! The worst is Laid Back's "Groovin' on a Feeling" that samples the Beatles' "All you need is love."

Putumayo has done better party albums--such as the fabulous (but sadly,out of print) "New World Party",which had a great mix of styles,as well as its Groove albums. "World Party" won't get the party started,but might end it early.

I love this CD - like a lot of Putumayo recordings, it just makes me feel good when I hear the various sounds and rhythms. I love music from around the world. I have played it many many times when I'm doing errands around town and when I'm on the backroads. Anyone should like it who likes to travel and experience new places, new sounds and diverse flavors of life.

One of the perfect CDs to play in the background of a party...or when I'm just cleaning the house.

I alwasy take time to get used to a Putumayo album and this was no exception. I was disappointed at first after the first song but then took to the music. I find Putumayo an exciting musical experience.
