Please note!
Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. I guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
Thanks- Cliff, cdRoots

Alpcologne - Alpha
Probably a totally new concept to you, as it is to me: 3 alphorns and vocals. The concept of the band arises from its unusual instrumentation. The warm, rich sound of the 4-meter-long traditional instruments encounters the expressiveness and melodic flexibility of the voice. Like the explorers of past centuries, Alpcologne can experiment with its own sound - playing Folk, Ska, Tango, Mambo, Cajun, Bluegrass, and Oriental music; original compositions or reinterpretations. Unique, to say the least!

Tsabropoulos and Lechner - Chants, Hymns and Dances
Compositions by Gurdjieff and Vassilis Tsabropoulos, performed by pianist Tsabropoulos and Anja Lechner on violincello. the pieces are boundary crossing experiments in multi-cultural classicism and contemporary minimalism, often mournful, occasionally spritely.

Lakis and Achwach - Taxidi/Die Reise
Greek-Austrian musican Lakis and his ensemble Achwach prove the variety of their musical work. 'Die Reise' (the journey) is not only the CD's title, it is emblematic of their approach to music.

Lakis and Achwach - Xenos
Austria-based Greek musician Lakis Jordanopoulos´ songs are about uprooting and exile, like the songs of the Greek Rembetes, who learned to laugh and cry at the same time. The music he creates with the ensemble Achwach is the neo-Rembetiko of a Vienna-based international band, a music about happiness and sadness, love, loneliness and despair.

Art songs and recited poetry for the theater from the works of Swiss writer Robert Walser, performed by actress Anne Bennent and avant-garde accordionist Otto Lechner.
