When his friend Erik was ill with cancer, 6-year-old Skyler Pia wanted to cheer him up. So he did what most kids his age only dream about: he went into his dad's studio and, off the top of his head, hosted a radio show. Skyler's charming world music show features international songs from five Putumayo Kids CDs and information about the artists and cultures. Skyler's parents were so proud of his work that they shared his recording with everyone they knew, including Bonnie Raitt - a longtime fan of Putumayo World Music. She suggested that they send the show to Putumayo founder Dan Storper, who loved it so much he decided to release it as a specially-priced CD. The result is One World, One Kid, a benefit CD with all of Putumayo's proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Skyler picked the Make-A-Wish Foundation because they had helped his friend Erik and he wanted to make sure others benefited as well. The CD will be available in late January.

Reggae Playground presents renowned artists from reggae’s birthplace of Jamaica. Judy Mowatt, a former backing vocalist for Bob Marley and a respected solo artist, invites listeners to get moving with her rousing “Let’s Dance.” Children hear about the importance of respecting each others’ differences and the need to work together in Rita Marley’s classic anthem, “Harambe.” The Jamaican reggae arrangements of “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by the legendary Toots & the Maytals and the Burning Souls’ rendition of “Here Comes the Sun” demonstrate the adaptability of this infectious beat to almost any tune.
— Pat Selby, owner of Calico Cats LLC in West Bainbridge Island, Wash., “Just ran out. We’ll be ordering more Putumayo Kids.”
