The World Music Network's Think Global Americas Gift Pack will bring a little fiesta into the festive season this year. This set of four CDs takes the listener on a journey from the chilled out, unplugged sets of Brazil in 'Think Global: Acoustic Brazil', to the age-old traditions heard in 'Think Global: Native America', and finally to the electrifying array of styles in 'Think Global: Fiesta Latina'. As an extra stocking filler we've also thrown 'Think Global: World Christmas' into the mix, and all four could be yours for just £15 (standard price of each CD is £8.99).
On top of this incredible saving, this gift pack also supports the work of Oxfam and Amnesty International through its affiliation with our ethical Think Global label.
Brazilian music encompasses a vast array of cool styles, ranging from the driving samba of Rio’s carnival to the lilting melodies of its enchanting acoustic grooves. 'Think Global: Acoustic Brazil' features unplugged, late-night tracks from Brazilian legends such as Maria Bethania, Chico Buarque, Marcos Sacramento and Paulo Moura.
Think Global Native America is a celebration of the inspirational culture of North America’s first peoples and explores the powerful influence of traditional pow wows, sun dances and ceremonial gatherings alongside the sublime flute playing of Carlos Nakai, and the unforgettable voice of the legendary Buffy Sainte-Marie.
The infectious rhythms and electrifying dance steps of salsa, merengue, and bachata guarantee the perfect Latin fiesta. From the legendary Ray Barretto and the Grammy award-winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra to the explosive sound of Colombia’s La Sonora Dinamita, 'Think Global: Fiesta Latina' is the ultimate Latin party soundtrack.
Whether decorating banana and mango trees in India, listening out for the soulful early morning carol singing in parts of Africa, celebrating against the snowy backdrop of Moscow’s Red Square, awaiting Papai Noel’s arrival in Brazil or partying through the bright nights of Latin America’s Navidad season, Christmas is recognised throughout the world as a time for merrymaking, joviality and reflection. From Puerto Rico to Bulgaria, Italy to the Dominican Republic, Think Global World Christmas is a tribute to the worldwide celebrations of this joyful and unifying time of year.
