Published September 5, 2005

The company will turn over profits from New Orleans and Mississippi compilations.

Putumayo World Music is donating all proceeds through the end of the year from its critically acclaimed albums New Orleans and Mississippi Blues to Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. The rich musical traditions captured on these albums are a testament to the strong character of the people and their unique cultural legacy.

The donation of proceeds from the two albums is a token of appreciation for the music Louisiana and Mississippi have given us. Putumayo World Music encourages everyone to give back any way they can.
