Putumayo Presents: 10th Anniversary Collection

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
When Putumayo world music began, ten years ago, as an offshoot of a clothing company (founder Dan Storper eventually sold off the rag biz and stayed with the music), few would have guessed that the record label would amount to much. Few world music labels do. But beyond issuing over 100 albums, the company pioneered the concept of world music as lifestyle accessory, selling international sounds in boutiques and restaurants, and went on to launch a popular syndicated radio show and school curriculum.

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
When Putumayo world music began, ten years ago, as an offshoot of a clothing company (founder Dan Storper eventually sold off the rag biz and stayed with the music), few would have guessed that the record label would amount to much. Few world music labels do. But beyond issuing over 100 albums, the company pioneered the concept of world music as lifestyle accessory, selling international sounds in boutiques and restaurants, and went on to launch a popular syndicated radio show and school curriculum. Most surprising of all, they've done it with a remarkably clear vision that's borne out in the consistent appearance of new artists on each successive compilation. In short, the Putumayo gang could easily churn out collection after collection -- but they still does their homework. The premium the label places on mood may not equal the rigorous research of competitors such as the Rough Guides series, but it's hard to argue with their relentlessly upbeat notion of international pop. This double-disc, limited-edition collection makes the case nicely. Plenty of the artists are head-scratchers, but the songs are great. And with Putumayo records available at seemingly every coffee shop, candle jobber, and health food nook, is there anyone else consistently bringing talents such as Martinique's Kali, Zimbabwe's Oliver Mtukudzi, Mali's Habib Koite, or Brazilians Zeca Baleiro and Chico Cesar to the mall masses? Even those put off by the gratingly naïve cover art on nearly all of the releases should take a moment to thank Putumayo for furthering the cause of world music and the worthy cultural understanding it engenders. It just so happens that this set makes a perfect soundtrack for doing so. [The limited-edition, specially packaged collection includes a 40-page booklet, festival guide, and enhanced tracks including music videos and a documentary short.]
All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
To celebrate their tenth anniversary in the music business, Putumayo released the two-disc 10th Anniversary Collection sampler as a compilation in its own right, as well as a basic highlight sampler drawing from the label's previous hundred or so albums. The album starts out with a reggae track from the Islands album, moving into some light samba and a bit of Cuban. A track from the first Women of Spirit album follows, followed itself by another track from the Islands album and one from the second Coffee Lands album. A track from the Latinas women's album continues the light groove, continued further by a piece from the lounge album World Lounge. Habib Koité provides a piece from his single-artist album, Eric Bibb tosses in one from the children's World Playground album, and Oliver Mutukudzi contributes one from one of his single-artist albums. The first disc finishes with a Ladysmith Black Mambazo cover of an old Curtis Mayfield number. The second disc focuses less on worldwide styles which the first disc did in favor of slightly more local styles, as updated into contemporary grooves. The cross-cultural group Kotoja starts out with a slightly more party-embracing atmosphere, followed up by Touré Kunda and the Brazilian reggae of Zeca Baleiro. The legendary Ralph Thamar provides a number from the French Caribbean album, and Angélique Kidjo's new classic "Batonga" makes an appearance as well, hailing from an earlier best-of compilation. From the Latin Groove album comes a nice Cuban number, as well as an Ali Slimani piece from Arabic Groove and a Madeka performance from African Groove. A piece from the Zydeco album continues the party beat, as does a Chico César number. Australian aboriginals prove they can play reggae just as well as the Rastafarians, and the album finishes on a Ricardo Lemvo number that combines the two main thrusts of Putumayo's musical lineups: African and Latin grooves. With the length of the compilation and the obvious pitfalls of jumping from one compilation's works to the next, the album does bear a bit of incoherence as it chugs along, but it benefits by making wise choices from the various tracks available on the previous albums. The basics of the Putumayo stables and archives are all represented, and the accompanying liner notes and multimedia add a bit to the allure. As a starting point for the styles of relaxed grooves embraced by Putumayo albums, this one does a fine job for new listeners, and also as a directional tool for those who have been perusing the racks without making a choice.
