We are moving on from the continent of Africa for now! It's been so much fun but now we are on to Asia. To a land of beautiful Jade and Tea. Our artist this month is a multicultural, multi-genre amazing Talent and I am honored to even be graced by her presence. She also has an amazing gift called synesthesia, which means she sees music and other things in color! This Live experience you don't want to miss
Order by April 13th to get this box!
Q: Whats the difference between the suitcase and the book bag box?Asked by Safiya L., 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
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
Q: The NEWYEARNEWME coupon isn’t working. Is it only good on certain items?Asked by Pamela B., February 2021
Yes, It is currently for the BOOKBAG BOX & SUITCASE BOX. Please try the coupon again and if it does not work I will recreate the coupon for you. :)
Update- the coupon ended on march 9th
Q: How long are the performances in the suitcase box?Asked by Safiya L., January 2021
They can be 30 min to 1hr.
The performance I attended was an hour :)
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!
Thank you for your review! Please keep dancing with us!!!!
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!!
Those two items were the favorites this month! I am happy you enjoyed! Love the pics!
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!
THIS REVIEW HAS MADE ME SO HAPPY! HAPPY YOU ENJOYED! SEE YOU IN MADAGASCAR NEXT MONTH!

YAYYYYYYYY! I am so happy you loved it! Cant wait to meet you on Sunday for the I've experience!
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💜🌺💜
Thank you Jacqueline for your wonderful review! Thank you for believing in my box and taking a chance with me. Looking forward to many travel through music adventures with you!
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
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this thoughtful review! I appreciate it so much!
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!
Omg! Thank you for this amazing review! I am so happy that you absolutly loved the box! Cant Wait To Travel Through Music With You For Months To Come!
I am absolutely stunned and amazed by the awesomeness of this box. As a music and travel lover, as well as a subscription box junkie, this is the coolest box I've ever seen, heard, felt, tasted, and smelled. The founder is creative and lovely. Each piece or experience is better than the last, and the last one was fantastic, too. I know I'm gushing, but I can't recommend this box enough, you will be thrilled!
OMG YOUR REVIEW IS EVERYTHING!!! I AM IN TEARS THANK YOU! I AM HAPPY YOU LIKE THE MUSIC!! THIS REVIEW MEANT EVERYTHING!
This was my first subscription box ever and was worth ALL the hype!!! From the comfort of my home, I was able to travel to Madagascar, learn about the culture, hear gorgeous music not only by the featured artists, but others, and just immerse myself in the beauty of it all! The only time I received something so personalized and detailed in the mail, is when I get care packages from my mom😂 COVID may have presented us with a lot of restrictions, but for a moment I felt free while going through Safiya's box. I long to travel to different countries and until I can physically do that, this is the next best thing😊 You will NOT regret subscribing! What are you waiting for?!😝
Thank you so much for this beautiful review! That's what we aim to do, Travel through music :)I am happy you got to learn and be immersed in Malagasy culture.
This box is sure to make you want to dance. See the sites and smells of a country that has a lot of flavoring in its pasts. This month you get to bring a little piece of the Caribbean home. you might get some creole, you might get some jerk. I am willing to share that you will find some delicious coconut Fry Jacks bound to transport you to this destination. In this sunny location , you will be meeting a soulful songstress who's voice is bound to give you goosebumps.
Hello Travellers! for our first trip we are traveling to a marvelous country in East Africa. Our February box features handcrafted soapstone from skilled artisans, jewelry from a well-known tribe, a spice that will add a subtle and warm flavor to your dish, and some travel gear... Our featured artist is a favorite of mine. This artist's voice is so moving and has a very rich tone. Get ready to be moved by the innovative ways that they merge and combine genres.
Hello Travelers, We are heading south to Madagascar! This Box has some delicious chocolate from an area that has a long history of high quality and incredible flavor. A clutch handcrafted with a combination of raffia that makes for a striking conversation piece. Some gorgeous Madagascar Agate jewelry. I can't spill all the beans! Our Artists music is a blend of jazzy vocals, African groove, a touch of Caribbean beats, and pop. YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS!!!!!
