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

Zegar Zivi - Zegar Zivi (Zegar Lives)
Powerful acapella group vocals, often using the wild beating-against-drone technique of groktenje, diple playing, goat-calling and church-bell ringing from a group of amazingly resilient Serbian singers who've moved back to their village of Žegar in the rocky hill-country of Dalmatia in Croatia, a region war-shattered in the 1990s and still depopulated, but beautiful and now peaceful - to rebuild their homes and pick up the threads of their lives and rich musical traditions. The album's title, and the group's name, means Žegar Lives.Recorded in Žegar in May 2007, produced by Andrew Cronshaw in collaboration with Svetlana Spajić. The digipak contains a 60 page booklet with many photos and extensive notes including the background story to the recordings (in English). Listen

Boris Kovac - Mirror of the Voice
Unpublished works by Boris Kovač, what the artist calls The Three Stages of a Creative Journey. He says 'In my creative development I distinguish three essential stages, those of House, Way and Being. On the one hand, these stages correspond to certain periods in life and thus position themselves into life`s linear temporal flow, right from the firs up to the third; but on the other hand, these stages are in many a respect simultaneous, they initiate and illuminate one another, so that it is only their interrelationship that makes dramatical structure of that creative "journey" possible. Every stage possesses its own integrity, but only when related to the other ones, actually, to the whole.'

Vlada Kanic - En passent med aksent
Born in Belgrade and now living in Norway, songwriter and singer Kanic has made truly local music: he has taken his songs of war and peace in the Balkans and presented them to a Norwegian audience, in his adopted language. It's a bold move for an immigrant, but the songs carry a potency and the music accompanying them is superb. The Norwegian press has responded positively and so have audiences. Balkan music fans will find plenty to love in the musical accompaniment, too, with it's great sonic mix from a band of accordions, bass, guitars, cimbalom, violins and more.
