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

Apanui - E Tau Nei
fRoots says: 'What we have here is a beautifully subtle, understated (though often powerful, as on the war dance Taku Pu ) and very attractive blend of Maori traditional song forms, rhythms, oratory and harmonies with R and B, reggae, trip hop, garage and a whole mix of recent dance technology. That sounds like a familiar process with equivalents the world over these days, but this one mostly achieves that near-impossible melding where the elements accentuate each other rather than detract...'

Wai - Wai 100 Percent
Producer/musicians Mina Ripia and Maaka McGregor have produced a sound that features guest vocalists singing in traditional tone, vocal patterns and harmonies over a musical bed of organic, natural beats and rhythms (human breaths, insect, and bird sounds), indigenous percussion (poi) and action sounds (body slaps, haka stamping, etc). A variety of contemporary grooves complement the overall sound of WAI.
