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

Boubacar 'Badian' Diabate - Mande Guitar
An artist you have likely never heard before, part of a new series of recordings of great African guitarists. Mande Guitar is an intimate acoustic recording session by a phenomenal Mande guitarist. Born and raised in Bamako, Mali, in a family of djeli (griot) musicians, Badian is well known at home as a master of his art and a highly innovative improviser, yet he is considered an unsung hero of Malian guitar outside the Mande world.

Nahawa Doumbia - Kanawa
There are few voices in the musical world to compare to that of Nahawa Doumbia, one of Mali's most prodigious and powerful singers. Over the years we have heard her in the purest of forms (like the recent La Grande Cantatrice Malienne, recordings of the then 20 year old accompanied only by a guitarist), in major pop-music mode, as a guest with artists like St Germaine, and now, in 2020, we get a superb acoustic blending of old and new with Kanawa. Here she is accompanied by traditional instruments like n'goni, Kamale ngoni, karigna and other small percussion, as well as acoustic guitars and occasional drum kit and bass. - CF
