Putumayo World Music has really established itself in the world of music. The CDs produced are inspired and performed by various musical artists from around our great globe. The styles range from fast paced, hip rolling salsa, to acoustic flamenco guitar that will make you feel like you are lounging in a small bar in Spain, dining on tapas and sangria.

Some of the CDs are purely instrumental, making them perfect as background music for a dinner party. The CDs filled with vocals will have you singing along in another language with their catchy tunes, oblivious to the words you might be singing. The most popular would have to be Vintage France, with its accordion sounds and sultry rhythm, and Women Of Jazz that features 10 exceptional female vocalists across several eras. Putumayo also produce a hypnotic yoga album that is perfect to relax to even if you are not into yoga.

You can find a significant collection available from all Alfresco Emporium stores and on our website.
