Barefoot Books MUSIC CDs

I just love the fact that Barefoot Books has thought of incorporating diverse music from around the world in collaborating with PUTUMAYO KIDS music. This just adds more spice to what one of the things that Barefoot Books promote, which is multiculturalism. Putumayo is a company that  introduces music in a more global manner by putting together music from other cultures that are upbeat and inspiring throughout the international community. Putumayo kids is one of the leading music company that is committed to bringing the global scene through music. They have been in the market since 1993 and envisions to grow more with their culturally authentic labels.

So, some of the music CDs that are included in the Barefoot Books catalogs are found below. The information that are written in each of the CDs were gathered from the PUTUMAYO KID’s site. Please feel free to read them and share your love of  music throughout the globe.
