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

Africando - Viva Africando
Africando's 8th studio album, this is the first not recorded primarily in New York. This time the Africando masterminds, producer Ibrahima Sylla and arranger Boncana Ma´ga, bring New York's top Latin musicians, led by pianist Oscar Hernandez, to Paris. There they reunite with the group's vocal stars, Medoune Diallo, SÚkouba Bambino, Amadou BallakÚ and Shoubou, along with distinguished guest singers from diverse African and American countries, singing, all told, in 10 different languages.

Pape Fall and African Salsa - Artisanat
From one of the Africando crew, a new recording of latin-Senegalese connections

Amadou Balake - In Conclusion
Amadou BalakÚ is probably most familiar to listeners for his many years fusing Latin and African rhythms as a key member of Africando. But before and after that part of his career, he was a beloved artist at home, and these recordings, the last he made before he died in 2014, are a testament to his Burkinabe roots. They were made in a theater in Ouagadougou with the local musicians he has been playing with, most in single live takes. Essential and highly recommended.

Ablaye Ndiaye Thiossane - Thiossane
Ablaye Ndiaye Thiossane is part of the very fabric of Senegalese national identity, yet this is his first album recorded and released as lead artist. Joined here with members of Orchestra Baobab, legendary Congolese guitarist Papa Noel and Africando's Medoune Diallo Thiossane is a rich addition to Senegal's Afro-Cuban musical heritage. Listen
