Groovy Putumayo!

Putumayo has been sending me albums for review. The latest is from their “Groove” series – a series I admit I hadn’t bought into before (I was more into the Women of the World, etc genre). But I have to say, this latest one, Gypsy Groove, is really awesome.  It’s music compiled from the dancefloors of the Balkans  and Eastern Europe and it’s a whole lotta fun. A mix of Roma music with hip-hop and electronic beats, I never knew that acordions and violins could be so funky! There’s even some Gypsy Rap on track 3, Gipsy.cz.   I think my favorite is track 1, Zsa Manca.  Best of all, in keeping with the Putumayo tradition, a portion of this CD’s proceeds will be donated to charity – in this case to the Roma Education Fund – an organization dedicated to making education more accessible to Roma children.

This is definitely one CD that it is making its way to the cottage party weekend.

    I never heard of Putumayo before (what a shame!) but after hearing about them from you, I downloaded some songs and love them!
