Review:
Think of running down a grassy slope, of dancing on the beach, of colorful streamers fluttering in the breeze, and yellow kites against a blue sky: Volume 2 of Putumayo's multicultural "World Playground" music series has sunshine at its heart. Different languages and different instruments are infused with the same happy and playful spirit in songs from West and South Africa, the United Kingdom, Spain, India, Jamaica, Trinidad, Colombia, Mexico, and Algeria. The colorfully illustrated liner notes, with information about the origins of each song, are read-aloud entertaining.
