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

He is joined by an ensemble of vocalists (Agneta Stolpe), violin, the lira, zither and harmonica played by Magnus and Ola Bäckström, Jan Winter and Erik and Ingrid Ingels. Heady stuff, originally recorded in 1982 and quite radical at the time.

various - Thracian Rhapsody: The New Wedding Music in Bulgaria
The music that has come to be known as 'Bulgarian wedding music' has always been a strange mix of odd bedfellows. Jazz, folk songs, popular and ancient dances all seem to be brought together in this music. The set features unique recordings (not release don other CDs) by big names and small: Ivo Papazov and singer Yildiz Ibrahimova, the Christo Yotsov Trio, led by drummer and percussionist Yotsov with Nedyalko Nedyalkov on kaval and Stoyan Yankulov on tupan, clarinetist Philip Simonov with the ensemble Tristenik, clarinetist Mladen Malakov and Bisery, with Aliyosha Shibelev (accordion) and Matiyo Dobrev (kaval), and a searing gaida solo by Alexander Raitchev finishes it all off. Originally released in 1999. Highly recommended.

Epinfrai - Cercando (ES5310
Epinfrai is the project of four young musicians working on the repertoire of piffero, a sort of oboe used in the musical tradition of the northern part of Apennines, in the area called of the four counties. Starting from a deep knowledge of the development in the tradition of piffero in the last two centuries, once played with the Musa (a sort of bagpipe), then with the Italian accordion, Epinfrai is trying to give a new life to the tradition with the use of stylistic solutions taken by jazz, language that belongs to the musical training of some members of the band.

Ambrogio Sparagna - Fermarono i Cieli
In the middle of the 18th century Alfonso Maria de' Liguori and his Redemptorist priests introduced hymns both in the local dialect and in Italian, based on popular songs, to teach the basics of Christianity. Many of the songs were related to Christmas-tide celebrations, as well as lullabies, pastorales for the zampogna (Italian bag-pipes), alms-seeking chants, and others. Sparagna preserves the original spirit of these traditional folk prayers with Peppe Servillo and a female vocal quintet, accompanied by the eclectic instrumentalist Erasmo Treglia and an trio featuring a giant zampogna (bagpipe), along with harmonium, tamburelli, organetto (accordion), ciaramella, ghironda, oboe barocco, violino and more.

Ti Jaz - Reves Sauvages
Starting with a band of bass, drums and accordion, this Breton ensemble have added the instruments of jazz: saxophones, and the instrument of ancient France: the bombarde, a raspy, woodwind with a bagpipe-like sound. So, too, have they melded these musical elements, the melodies and ideas of early French music with the improvisation of free jazz and the gut of rock. They pay hommage to the 'ideal jazz' bands of 1940s and players like Yves Menez, who used horns, fiddle, accordion and banjo to create a new French folk music. In that same spirit, Ti Jaz sprawl across the musical landscape, one minute a dark dirge on bombarde, the next firing off a slap bass and drum riff that would settle in nicely at The Knitting Factory. The eight instrumental works on Rêves Sauvages are sometimes chaotic, often lyrical and always challenging. They achieve power without electricity, a power intrinsic in the instruments and the source material.' - RootsWorld
