Putumayo World Music is known throughout the world for connecting people with different types of world music. Their CD’s are easy to recognize in the stores with their colorful artwork and unique music compilations. Many of their best CD’s are salsa music collections. I own a couple and really enjoy the distinct salsa artists that are represented on those CD’s.
I was happy to learn that they are going to release a new salsa CD shortly titled “¡Salsa!”.The new CD features a number of well known salsa artists from Colombia, Cuba, Puerto RicoVenezuela, New York and other places that have influenced salsa music. These artists include Eddie Palmieri, Cheo Feliciano, Chico Alvarez, Son Boricua, Poncho Sanchez, Jose Conde, Fruko y sus Tesos, and Grupo Galé.
Apart from sharing great music, Putumayo also helps out the world community through the sales of its CD’s.For example, a portion of the sale of the new “¡Salsa!” CD will be donated to the Pan American Health and Education Foundation (PAHEF) in support of its efforts to improve health care in the Caribbean and throughout Latin America.I included the video above to give you some more background information about Putumayo and what they do worldwide.
