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

El Curi - El caballero de Habana
The romance between Cuba and Spanish singer Antonio Curiel (El Curi) remains untouched - ever in love with the island, El Curi naturally turned himself into El Caballero de La Habana expressing all his troubles with the city of his passion. El Curi recorded the entire CD in Cuba with Cuban musicians. This CD is a love song with a sweet Habanera rhythm. 'El Curi's is the wry, knowing gaze of an aging anti-imperialist hipster, wounded romantic and Santería convert, reflecting upon desperate love and the inexorable contradictions of daily life in his beloved Havana. El Curi is at home with the island and its music, and (unlike many come-lately musical tourists) has the good sense to allow his collaborators to do what they do best as he tells his own story.' - RootsWorld
