Titla (Gega New, Bulgaria)
The kaval master and a powerful small ensemble explore ancient roots and contemporary ideas, turning from folk roots to pure pop on a dime.
The title means hard soil. The CD design incorporates a small plastic pouch of soil from the village of Kostenets, Bulgaria.

Please note!Most 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. We 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.
