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

ZetaBoo - OuterRail
ZetaBoo arrives for a second round with this down to earth CD, a unique blend of pop, jazz and folk-roots. Composer Jarmo Saari offers songs that are melodic and folky, spontaneous and intuitive. Marko Timonen provides the swinging percussion that is at the heart of this new recording, driving a more relaxed band of vocals, accordion, keyboards, guitars, cavaquinho, trombone, lapsteel, keyboards, citara, and bass (Pekka Lehti) , a bit more subtle than their previous releases. The theme of the disc is the outer rail and homesickness. Says Saari: 'This is like a series of traveller's landscapes. The journey is more important than arriving. The traveller prefers to follow a flitting butterfly or the advice of a stranger than a tourist map. Boldness and spontaneity are rewarded.'

Pekka Lehti and Outo Voima - Sohjo
The latest from the Finnish bass player expands his last Outo Voima project by creating a more solid ensemble approach, a larger, deeper sound and an unabashed sense of playful energy and dark wit. Pekka Lehti - double bass; Marko Timonen - percussion; Jouko Kyhälä - harmonium, harmonicas, melodica, claviola, overtone singing and kantele

Lehti, Pekka - Outo Voima
Varttina bassist steps out of the roots music and into jazz, avant garde and other experiments in duets with Timo Alakotila (harmonium), Sanna Kurkio-Suonio (voice), Wimme Saari (vocal joiks), Arto Jarvela (violin), Jarmo Saari (guitar) and Riita Kossi (accordion). Unique new music from Finland

Sväng - Schladtzshe
The Finnish harmonica quartet strikes again. "Schladtzshe!" is both a swear and a toast. The band explains it: "Brothers! Let us make our mistakes with pride, for life otherwise is a mere collection of irrational occurrences. Let us empty our abundant, if sometimes bitter, drink with joy!" You'll just have to listen.

Svang - Sväng
Sväng offers a fresh and unusual take on Finnish folk and popular styles like the tango, and on Balkan, Swedish and completely original folk music, by using only the mouth harp, the harmonica, in forms small and large, the chromatic, diatonic, harmonetta and bass. The members of the ensemble are all well respected in various musical worlds in Finland. The music runs the gamut from moody to raucous, from the sumblime to the comical, from the subtle to the outright jaunty.

Maria Kalaniemi - Vilda rosor (Wild Rose)
The 2010 release by the Finnish free-bass button accordionist delves into Finnish-Swedish folk roots, accompanied by a wonderful ensemble including Pekka Lehti, Arto Järvelä, Eero Grundström, Olli Varis and many other great Finnish musicians.

Lepisto, Markku - Silta
The Finnish accordionist best known for his continuing work with Värttinä, but also for ground-breaking work in the Finnish folk music scene with Progmatics, Katrilli and Pirnales, his recent duo recording with Petri Hakala , and the ensemble Doina Klezmer. This recording sees him in the company of some of Finland's best musicians, collaborating on a wide ranging groups of works both traditional and innovative.

Jouko Kyhala - Saalas
Harmonica master Jouko Kyhälä (of Svang) is joined by Piia Kleemola (violin), Pekka Lehti (bass), Janne Lappalainen from Varttina (bouzoki) and Abdissa Assefa (percussion) for a wide ranging musical tour.
