A Putumayo Music Trivia Quiz

Putumayo is sponsoring this quiz, and has offered up a great set released last year, Tango Around The World.

I woke up this morning to 8 emails, and the first had every answer necessary. Will be sending the other 7 folks a used cd from my review pile.

Here’s the “world-music” story and quiz: In 1978 this Jamaican artist’s 3rd solo album was released on a British label owned by a rock band. One of the band members sang a duet on the first single that was written by a songwriting team in Detroit, and had been a hit for an American soul group. Obviously, there are world-wide roots for this single from the album.

For your copy of Tango Around The World, email the name of the artist and the song. Extra credit if you can also name the singer who sang along.
