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

Korova - A Distant Echo
This vocal-tamboura quartet from Bulgaria play authentic folk music from the Rhodope mountains in Bulgaria, with energy and directness. Their performance is captured in their home town setting, without a fancy studio sound or production... you'll hear the listeners join in, you'll hear the trucks drive by.

Zig Zag Trio - When the bees are gathering honey
The Gypsy wedding music of Bulgaria has been made famous by the likes of Yunakov and Papasov, but this ensemble is every bit their equal as they thunder through Gypsy music, crazy jazz and wild improvisations on accordion, tupan, percussion and guitar. Highly Recommended!

various - Thracian Rhapsody: The New Wedding Music in Bulgaria
The music that has come to be known as 'Bulgarian wedding music' has always been a strange mix of odd bedfellows. Jazz, folk songs, popular and ancient dances all seem to be brought together in this music. The set features unique recordings (not release don other CDs) by big names and small: Ivo Papazov and singer Yildiz Ibrahimova, the Christo Yotsov Trio, led by drummer and percussionist Yotsov with Nedyalko Nedyalkov on kaval and Stoyan Yankulov on tupan, clarinetist Philip Simonov with the ensemble Tristenik, clarinetist Mladen Malakov and Bisery, with Aliyosha Shibelev (accordion) and Matiyo Dobrev (kaval), and a searing gaida solo by Alexander Raitchev finishes it all off. Originally released in 1999. Highly recommended.

The CD also includes performances by singer Zhivka Papancheva, the gaida player Petyo Kostadinov, kaval player Lyuben Dossev, and Teodor Dimitrov on gudulka .
