Putumayo Kids' Reggae Playground presents renowned artists from reggaes birthplace of Jamaica. Judy Mowatt, a former backing vocalist for Bob Marley and respected solo artist, invites listeners to get moving with her rousing Lets Dance.

For example, Johnny Dread, an artist of Cuban heritage who now lives in Miami, sings about Rootsman Dread, a colorful figure beloved by children. Marty Dread represents the huge popularity of reggae music in Hawaii, and Jessica, from the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius, displays the popular blending of traditional sega music with reggae.
