$29.95Price
The far-reaching influence of the Blues is undeniable. Blues Around the World documents the trials and tribulations expressed through the Blues from a global perspective. Through the course of the album you’ll meet a Catalonian “blues mama” and a Mandarin-speaking, motorcycle-riding blues poet, as well as a Mauritanian whose fans call him the “blues man of the desert.”
A portion of Putumayo's proceeds from the sale of Blues Around the World are donated to Music Maker Relief Foundation, Inc. Music Maker helps true pioneers and forgotten heroes of Southern music gain recognition and meet their day-to-day needs. The Foundation presents America’s musical traditions to the world in order for them to flourish and be preserved for future generations.
