Questions

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

Cheers to this box I really love what I got and heard the artists voice is amazing, if you love travel and miss live shows this box is for you. The opportunity to meet talented new artist from all over the world learning the cultures is indeed a pleasant discovery. I even got coupons in my box and a booklet with a lot of information on the artist homeland . I am dancing ! Cannot wait to order for months to come!

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!!

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💜🌺💜

This box was curated really beautifully. I got a sneak peak of it and Safiya really did a great job seeking out small businesses to put in the box and she's actively working with the featured artists so that you get the most interactive experiences with them. A someone who can't work as a musician or stage hand due to the pandemic and also loves going on tour, this box definitely gives me something to look forward to every month. I didn't even know what a subscription box was but this was a great introduction.... also you gotta taste the tea in this box! Its now my favorite tea

My first box was the Madagascar experience and it was so well done! I get a lot of subscription boxes and this is by far one of my favorites. The products are very thoughtfully chosen to represent the destination country and the box is jam packed! Safiya also puts a great deal of personal attention to the little details: a wax seal, personalized boarding passes, and a travel booklet with tons of information about the country. The most unique part is a live experience with the featured artist who performs many of their songs for the group. It's a wonderful cultural and musical experience!

If you love traveling and music, then YOU NEED THIS BOX! I can't say enough good things about it. It is so much more than "just" a subscription box, it is a whole experience. It is so carefully curated with so many details, I keep finding new things. From the recipes, to the QR code links, to the live zoom performance by the featured artist to the thoughtful items in the box, this is by far the best box I've ever received. I can't wait for the next one! If you miss live music and traveling, you must get the box!
