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

Experimental new music from Tromso, Norway performed on cello, trombone, electronics, voice, piano and percussion.

Onkelfolke - Kasta Beinet
Onkelfolke is another good example of the new-folk-wave in contemporary Norway. They play new compositions based on the traditions of their home regions of Nordmøre, Rogaland and Vest-Agder, sometimes combining regional influences into something genuinely new and unique to modern Norway. Folk songs, ballads, springar, pols and halling dance tunes find a new lift in the skilled hands of these musicians playing accordion, flute, guitar, hardinfele, percussion and voices.

Lorentz Hop - Hardangar Fiddle
Back in print! Lorentz Hop lived from 1887 to 1954 and was one of Norway´s leading Hardanger fiddle players in his time. He was from Fana near Bergen. From 1930 until he died in 1954, Hop toured and played in Norway and abroad. The music dates from the 17th century. The Hardanger fiddle music from western Norway has power, strong heavy rhythms, and a very rich explorative tonality. Lorentz Hop is a sound from the past - with something to tell us, today

Håkon Høgemo - Solo
Håkon Høgemo is one of the foremost fiddlers in Norway today. His unique sound and technique have lifted the art of Hardanger fiddle playing to a higher level. His solo album presents Hardanger fiddle music from some of the main areas of this tradition: Sogn, Voss, Hardanger and Valdres.

Moldestad, Mjolsnes, Hogemo - Gamaltnymalt
Three outstanding fiddlers developing traditions into something real new. Sigrid Moldestad, Einar Mjølsnes and Håkon Høgemo are essential performers of the Norwegian fiddle tradition, and here they present their music on the 5-string hardingfele (hardangar fiddle), creating a potent and formidable sound! This recording was awarded the Norwegian 'Spellmannprisen' in 2005.

Karl Seglem and Reidar Shar - Tya
Reidar Skår (piano, keyboards and computers) is an innovative and creative musician, composer and producer working in his own studio in Oslo. He has participated on a numerous list of recordings with Norwegian jazz, pop and rock artists. Skår has been collaborating with Seglem for years - mainly as a studio technician, co producer and composer/arranger. Seglem (sax and horns) has been called one of Norway's foremost saxophonists, with an original and distinctive voice and a unique ability to renew himself. They are joined by an ensemble of fiddle, guitar, accordion, voices, percussion and more in an adventurous set from 1997.

AKKU - AKKU5
This Norwegian quintet makes music with high energy, presented by two voices, saxophone, percussion and tuba. Akku gives you a daring vocal art performance that crosses many borders. Improvisations both on traditional and unexplored grounds: Both in between the ugly and the beautiful and in between the humoristic and the serious. The sound of AKKU is a clear and opposite statement to intellectual and mechanical music.

Andrea Kvintett - Andrea Kvintett
Andrea offers unusual songs with unusual subjects, beautifully crafted and performed by the singer/composer, along with the three young saxophone players Svein Magnus Furu, Harald Lassen, Kim-Erik Pedersen and Christian Meaas Svendsen on bass.

Stein Versto - Urjen. Slåttar Etter Olav Og Eivind Groven
Solo hardingfele (hardangar fiddle) performances of tunes from Olav and Eivind Groven.

Gabriel Fliflet - Åresong
The Norwegian singer and accordionist strikes again in 2011 accompanied by musicians like Benedicte Maurseth, Kristoffer Chelsom Vogt, Stein Urheim, Per Jørgensen, on guitars, percussion, bass, horns, fiddles, voices and more. While it lacks the sheer madness of the Fliflet-Hamre recordings of the 90s, it's just as exploratory and adventurous, with a touch of romanticism. Highly recommended.

Ase Teigland - Stille
Teigland comes from Utne in Hardanger. She is one of Norway´s talented young Hardanger fiddle players, and plays with genuine feeling and grace. She has studied with Knut Hamre, Stein Versto and Leif Rygg. On this solo CD she plays tunes in nine different tunings for the fiddle. Liner notes in Norwegian and English give the history and origin of the tunings and the tunes.
