Blues Around The World
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.
