Q: Whats the difference between the suitcase and the book bag box?Asked by Safiya L., January 2021

Safiya’s World Music Playlist answered...January 2021

The difference between the suitcase and the bookbag box is that the suitcase box gives you a more hands-on, interactive experience with the musician. You get a live Q &A / Interview where you can ask the artist anything, a live performance that could be 30 min to 1hr (depends on the musician), and also a cultural experience of the musicians choosing which could be language, cooking, dancing, music-related, or anything creative they may choose to showcase their country and culture.
The bookbag box is without that experience but you get to still discover the featured artist as well as get tourism coupons from the country, and other goods from the country.

Q: What do some of the cultural experiences look like?Asked by Safiya L., January 2021

Safiya’s World Music Playlist answered...January 2021

The cultural experiences are of the featured artist's choosing.
It could be anything from them teaching you some of the languages, dance moves from their country, showing you a recipe, teaching you songs, etc. Anything is possible! :)

My cultural experience with the artist was so much fun. The artist taught us some of her viral music video dances as well as drove us around Boston to her favorite spot and told us why. It was great as well as unexpected

This box is unlike any other box out there. I have a little bit of an obsession going on with box subscriptions but this one hit home and warmed my heart from the moment I opened the box. It wasn't just a box full of stuff - it was an experience! It felt like Safiya customized this box specifically for me. There was a personalized note, a boarding pass with my name on it to China, a baggage tag and a boarding pass to my next destination - I felt like I was actually going on vacation! The first thing I did was to scan my pass and put the spotify playlist. After reading the travel booklet, I continued to go through each of the items - I could almost feel myself walking through the market and picking out some of them out. The taste of the candies, the smell of the tea, the detail in the edges of the notebook and the music to my ears - I didn't just get a whole lot of beautiful things, I also got to experience China. Through Safiya's World Music Tour you can expect to feel like VIP and to experience a piece of the culture from that country through music and goodies! Not to mention the zoom performance by the featured artist! I cannot wait to visit the next destinations!

My Daughter and I loved watching the Kenya unboxing by Noel on YouTube!!! So I surprised her by getting a subscription and so glad we did. Madagascar was so neat to learn about and the music by Niu Raza was beautiful! We loved receiving each item especially the beautiful jewelry set with stones from the country, and a baobab tree bonsai set we are so excited to try to grow! Thank you so much for the personal touch Safiya!!

Great product! Love that the box includes really helpful and informative travel information... perfect for when we can all travel again! I personally loved how personable the box feels with artist collaboration as many subscription boxes feel purely commercial. Products were great and fun for anyone who is interested in discovering different cultures through means of music, cute products, and many more.

WOW! I am superlatively amazed! 😍So beautifully, thoughtfully, and intelligently designed and executed.
Each box comes with a QR code on a personalized boarding pass (just for you) so that you can feel the glory of the destination from wherever you are. I got to experience Kenya without budging from LA, and let me say, it is magical! 🇰🇪
I can’t wait to uncover the rest of my travel brochures, attend a zoom concert by Kenyan artist Eduardo Omondi, find a home for my soapstone zebra (Kenny,) learn some Swahili, try on my new handmade earrings by @josina.supplies, and more! 🦓
I even received travel supplies for when I can visit Kenya for real! And thanks to Safiya, I’ll be prepared to enjoy. 😃
Check out my unboxing on Instagram @blythe.bunnee to see for yourself. And let me say, you also must experience it for yourself! Use code BLYTHE for 20% off a Bookbag/Suitcase Box for up to two subscription renewals 😊 You certainly will not regret it!

Welcome to Kenya is an amazing box! The packaging was so lovely, the QR CODES are user friendly and the contents exceeded my expectations. The traditional music played in the background as I explored,read, virtually visited while I enjoyed treasures from Kenya. I’m looking forward to having a Kenyan dinner for my grandchildren. So beautifully presented and generous💜🌺💜
