They have a ton of titles with the series to choose from. I tried to choose
music from various cultures that my students could relate to and some that
would be completely new to them. I have found all of the selections so far
to be upbeat and catchy. I recently played the "Gypsy Caravan" CD and my
students complained loudly. However, by the end of class I noticed several
were moving to the beat! I always live by the philosophy that the students
"only like what they know" and therefore I try to expose them to new things.
They can listen to their stuff and the radio anytime...just not in my class.

Someone from this list suggested the Putamaya music series and I invested in
several of them and they are awesome! I also love the Afro-Celtic sound
system which is also an awesome series of CD's.
Rebecca--where did you get them and what titles do you suggest? Thanks
