FROM THE LABEL:

Putumayo gives the holiday season an international flavor with Christmas Around the World, a collection of familiar Christmas songs performed by artists from all over the globe. From a Cuban rendition of Joy to the World to a flamenco version of White Christmas, Christmas Around the World adds a unique twist to the classic carols that enliven the holidays. In a world that is constantly changing, Christmas is a time for revisiting the familiar customs and rituals that connect everyone to generations past. While Christmas is celebrated in different ways around the world, among the unifying elements that help create holiday spirit are the songs, hymns, and carols that serve as the soundtrack for the season. And, though every country has its own unique songs, there are certain melodies that have crossed every border. Most of the songs on Christmas around the World will sound familiar through a few are traditional melodies from a region or culture. All conjure up the Christmas spirit and add a special, international flavor to the holiday ambiance. A portion of the proceeds of Christmas Around the World will be donated to the Putumayo Cross- Cultural Initiative, a non-profit 501(c)(3) project of the Tides Center that uses world music, experiential learning, and the arts to inspire children and families to explore and connect with diverse cultures.
