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

Ibrahim Ozgur - Tangolar: The Bel Ami of Turkish Tango
In the late 20s and 30s tango was very popular in Turkey. For many composers and singers it was the first contact they had with "western" music. Turkish musicians and singer Ibrahim Ozgür wrote many tango songs and had an evident talent for nostalgia. His velvety voice was predestined for romantic tangos. The songs on this CD were recorded in Istanbul between 1938 and 1949.

Tri a Tolia - Zumurrude
Turkish voice - Iraqi qanun - Belgian cello. One language. The songs are composed by Melike and Osama. Osama also arranged the music, together with one of Belgium's finest cellists, Lode Vercampt, who has put his own stamp on this originally eastern music.

Ferhat Tunc - Kobani
Ferhat Tunç is the kind of singer, rare in today's popular data stream, who must bear witness to the politics of his art in everyday life. Despite having been persecuted, sentenced, and jailed for his sonic activism, if not also because of the infractions inflicted upon him by his own government, Tunç has persevered in focusing his attention on those who have, less fortunately, paid with their lives. Recorded in Istanbul and Oslo, and mixed at the latter city's famed Rainbow Studio by master engineer Jan Erik Kongshaug, Kobani is Tunç's deepest mission statement yet.' - Tyran Grillo, RW
A RootsWorld 'Music of the Month' recording.

Guletkin, Vandenabeele, etc… - Chansons pour la fin d'un jour
Dreams through amazing stories of central Anatolia to the Brussels baths, evoked by the singing of the duduk, the clarity of the violin, the harmony of the saz and the subtle play of the double bass. Composed like the second chapter of the album 'Chansons sans paroles' (nominated by Belgian Klara Radio Music Awards 2007), this new album was born from memories of journeys to the heart of Eastern Europe bringing together two ambassadors of Turkish music, Emre Gültekin playing the saz a long-necked Ottoman lute and Ertan Tekin playing the duduk an ancient armenian wind instrument with double reed, and a virtuoso violinist Wouter Vandenabeele and the excellent double bass of Joris Vanvinckenroye.
