You will be transported to a swinging hammock under the swaying palms when you listen to this delightful CD. The rhythm of the islands beats lightly through all the songs, and the gentle melodies and smooth vocals float on a tropical breeze. The varied languages add an exotic flair, and the upbeat percussion makes you want to get up and dance! Pour yourself a cold fruity drink and put this CD on for an instant island vacation! Wonderful stuff.

Instant vacation

"This is a fine representation of island music and another home run for the folks at Putumayo! Put this on and I guarantee it will definitely help the winter doldrums. If you've been to the islands, you know what I mean, it will take you back. This is the real deal, not Jimmy Buffett ideal, (don't get me wrong , he's great although getting a bit commercialized) this is what you need for hosting an island themed party. Everyone loves it because it's so different. Exotic, but not over the top; It dosen't matter if you don't understand the lyrics, the music moves you at a more basic level that transcends language."

"I heard this at my favorite coffee shop (The Coffee shop in Thornton Park - Orlando, FL) and had to have it. This is a great mix of island music that will transport you to the islands. Reminds me of days spent island hopping! After 'discovering' this Putumayo blend, I have ordered Calypso and other cd's. They are wonderfully relaxing to listen to while trapped at work dreaming of an island adventure! Great for the body and soul!"
