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

Qvale's Ensemble - Gronn
An unusual pop recording from Norway features a unique singer backed by an adventurous ensemble, and produced by Farmers Market legend Stian Carstensen.

Farmers Market - Slav to the Rhythm
Only Stian Carstensen, the Norwegian guitarist, accordionist, pianist, organist, kavalist - the list goes on and on - could have come up with such an album. His ability to defy geography and genre is legend and his musical abilities, and those of the people he surrounds himself with, is top notch. Better still, this like every other recording he has made, is completely new and different from what precedes it. Hard pop, global jazz, Balkan dance music, Russian surf tunes and more all collide and collude to make this a compelling piece of progressive roots-pop.

Various Artists - Stjerner Lyser Hvite: The Songs of Jens Gunderssen
This double CD release marks the 100 years since the actor, director, theater manager, composer, singer and poet Jens Gunderssen was born. Jens Gunderssen became nationally known through radio, phonograph, live events and tours. His soft-spoken, warm and melodic folk songs, often to his own guitar or lute accompaniment, represented an almost separate genre when he came on the phonograph market in the 1940s.

Various - Poetry And Languid Charm - Swahili Music From Tanzania and Kenya From The Late 1920s - 1950s
As recorded music developed in the early part of the 20th century, there was more and more pressure on commercial record labels to capitalise on indigenous music in Africa, Asia, South America and the Caribbean. This was not some sort of altruistic exercise, rather a market that was open to exploitation. On the East African coast, site of the present day Tanzania and Kenya, there was a "gold rush" fever in the 1930s to record the local music stars. The music recorded was mostly "taarab", sung poetry accompanied by an ensemble that played with both traditional African rhythms with Arabic influences and used Arabic and Indian instruments. This exciting music is being here released on CD for the first time and has been remastered to produce outstanding sound quality from the original 78 rpm recordings.
