Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Tallulah Dumonde


When his friend Erik was ill with cancer, 6-year-old Skyler Pia wanted to cheer him up. So he did what most kids his age only dream about: he went into his dad’s studio and, off the top of his head, hosted a radio show. Skyler’s charming world music show features international songs from five Putumayo Kids CDs and information about the artists and cultures.

Skyler’s parents were so proud of his work that they shared his recording with everyone they knew, including recording artist Bonnie Raitt, a longtime fan of Putumayo World Music. She suggested that they seend the show to Putumayo founder Dan Storper, who loved it so much he decided to release it as a specially-priced ($5.98) CD. The result is One World, One Kid, a benefit CD with all of Putumayo’s proceeds (a minimum of $2 per CD, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $50,000) going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation™. Skyler chose the Make-A-Wish Foundation because they had helped his friend Erik and he wanted to make sure others benefited as well.

One World, One Kid is available on the Make-A-Wish™ online store and in-store at thousands of children’s, record and retail outlets.
