What's the story?

Putumayo Kids is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International with the album KIDS WORLD PARTY. Not only does the album offer a fun, eclectic mix of 12 songs from all over the globe, but it also benefits charity, since Putumayo is donating a portion of the proceeds to Amnesty International. From American artists like Eric Bibb, Tom Freund and Friends, and Solanna to other international favorites such as Asheba, PALO!, Lucky Ali, and Balentes, among others, the music is sure to have the whole family moving to the soulful and upbeat tunes. An included kid-friendly booklet offers stories about how children all over the world celebrate special occasions.

Is it any good?

The Putumayo brand is synonymous with great children's music from around the globe. With Kids World Party, the tunes (from France, Cuba, the U.S.A., Switzerland, South Africa, Trinidad, India, Italy, and Canada) are just as danceable, upbeat, and fun as any other Putumayo Kids album, and this time the proceeds go toward a well-known charity. From celebrating life and Oompa Loompas to freeze dancing in between animal charades, the songs not only give kids and their parents a reason to smile, move, and think about other cultures, but they also help an organization that fights to protect human rights worldwide.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it means to listen to music from different cultures. What makes the music different? Can you still get an idea of what the song is about even if it's in a different language? How?

  • Putumayo is a very well-known brand in the children's music industry. Are you more likely to buy an album simply because it has the Putumayo stamp on it? Why or why not?
