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

Las Hermanas Caronni - Navega Mundos
From the RootsWorld review: Born in Argentina but living in France since 1998, Caronni sisters Gianna (clarinet, bass clarinet, vocals) and Laura (lead vocals, cello, violin) grew up in a multicultural family, absorbing a gamut of musical influences as they developed into the present duo. Sitting somewhere on the border of classical music and freer territories, they craft a form of chamber folk that is as lovely as it is intimate. Their original compositions are at once reflective of the past, and of a future in which fusions serve as expressions of genuine unity... This is a RootsWorld Music of the Month selection and proceeds support the magazine and radio programs.
