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

The World Mankeri Orchestra - Valkoista Sukua
Founded in 1984 as Etno-Pojat, the World Mänkeri Orchestra is an innovative (and aggressive) 'primitive jazz" ensemble that features hand-made, ancient reeds, horns, and drums and electric bass, and on this recording young Finnish vocalist Meri Titola, who brings a new dynamic to the ensemble's powerful noise.

The World Mankeri Orchestra - Inky Joy
The Finnish etno-pojat returns with their 2004 release of edgy winds, subtle percussion, bass and strings. Heikki Syrjänen and Pekka Westerholm - winds (including lira and mänkeri) and kantele; Olli Penttilä - bass; Markku Penttilä - percussion and bass; and Petri Pentikainen, percussion and drums.

Various artists - Ehtoota!
Concert performances recorded in the Etno-Pojat theater in Finland (home of the World Mänkeri Orchestra), includes songs by American Cafe Orchestra, Pinnin Pojat, Tallari, Nikolai Blad, Heikki Laitinen and more.

World Mankeri Orchestra - Thauma
Unique avant garde folk music from Finland. 'The mänkeri is the perfect counterpoint to the liru; like Djivan's sublime duduk offsetting Pharoah's reedy rhaita or Don Byron's thoughtful clarinet vs. Bird's frenetic alto. It adds a warm, introspective side that contributes to what is overall an enjoyably challenging, remarkably consistent and utterly original recording.' - RootsWorld
