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

Kayhan Kalhor - Scattering Stars Like Dust
Kayhan Kalhor is a native Iranian who now lives in NYC. He is a virtuoso player of the kamancheh, the so-called spike fiddle of Asia. It is played while seated cross legged on the ground, and held and bowed cello style. It has four strings and is about the length of a violin though the body is much smaller, resembling that of an nineteenth century gourd banjo. In the twentieth century the European violin began to replace the kamancheh, but it has begun to experience a revival, due, in part, to great players like Kalhor. Besides an extensive background in Iranian classical and folk music, Kalhor studied Western art music in Italy and Canada and, in this album, applies some classical techniques to the traditional" art music of his native country. These include occasional vibrato, quadruple time, staccato phrased passages, and general bravura passages meant to impress. His short, fast bowings are extraordinary, reminding me of the "butterfly" bowings of South Indian violinists like L. Shankar. He coaxes all mann
