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

Enteli - Enteli
Folk-jazz from Sweden faturing Bengt Berger, tabla and percussion, Jonas Knutsson, saxophones and additional percussion, Ale M and ouml;ller, multi instrumentalist, Johan Sandouml;derberg and singer Lena Willemark. The band describes it thus: 'Freedom is light and airy - freedom to soar upwards and float down. And all that music needs is to be played - nurtured and cherished. We begin and end with a scream. We breathe in, and before we have time to breathe out rhythm's steel spring is coiled tighter and tighter inside until it almost snaps, in a dance that is sometimes Swedish, sometimes a Sufistic, mystical dance of the dervish. Time and space intertwine in tightly plaited unity and with a slight flutter the rustlings and the sleepy whispers rise into the air and evaporate, like the sweet-smelling smoke from Grandpa's tobacco in the autumn.'
