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

Voz de Cabo Verde - voz com paz e amor
The 2004 lineup of the legendary Cape Verdean ensemble founded by Luis Morais in the 50s.

Titina - Titina Canta B.Leza
A landmark Cape Verdean album, re-mastered and re-packaged to celebrate its 25th anniversary. In the Creole town of Mindelo in Cape Verde, Titina used to be bewitched by sounds of legendary Cape Verdean composer, poet and activist B. Leza (1905, 1958). Produced and arranged by Paulino Vieira who also produced and arranged for Cesaria Evora, the album 'Titina Canta B. Leza' was immediately applauded as a classic. Now this definitive edition will bridge the gap that the many years of it being unavailable has created. It has been 25 years since Titina recorded these songs and like her music, the islands of Cape Verde are also becoming better known because of icons such as B. Leza who gave them their sound. As these sounds made their way to seduce across the world, it is B. Leza who led this great voyage and Titina who lent her voice to his magnetic and inspiring songs.

Carmen Souza w. Theo Pascal - Creology
Carmen Souza is daughter of Cape Verdeans and one of Portugal's great singers. Her 8th album is a collaboration with Portuguese bassist, writer and arranger Theo Pascal. They have created a new set of songs using the Creole music from around the world, mixing their inherited traditional cultural elements with other modern ideas. Their inspiration on this album comes from ex-colonial Portuguese countries- Cape Verde, Mozambique, Angola, Brazil, Cuba and then on to New Orleans. It's a joyous celebration of mixing culture, music and tradition that is as old as the human race.

Tcheka - Nu Monda
Tcheka is part of the new generation of Cape Verdean musicians. On Nu Monda, the he explores the 'batuque,' one of the popular beats on the island of Santiago, usually played by women, and explores other styles, such as 'tabanka', a carnival beat, or 'talulu', which is played on All Saints' Day on the island of Fogo. On this, his second album, Tcheka is backed by Kizo Oliveira (bass guitar), Paul Ribeiro (percussion) and Hernani Almeida (guitarist who appears on Bau's latest recordings).

Carmen Souza - Kachupada
Based in Portugal, Souza is one of the leading new voices from the Cape Verdean tradition. nspired by favorite Cape Verdean dish “Kachupada,” which — with its wide variety of ingredients and spices, reflects the multiplicity of influences in Carmen Souza’s music. And the band is stellar: Theo Pas’cal: bass, percussions, guitars, backing vocals; Mauricio Zottarelli: drums; Jonathan Idiagbonya: upright piano; Nelson Oliveira: backing vocals, bongos. This, her fourth studio album, features a few traditional settings, some great originals, and new cover versions of the jazz standards “Donna Lee“ and “My Favourite Things.” It's bright and lively and highly recommended.
