I was lucky enough to visit the monks of Keur Moussa Abbey in Senegal in the early 1980s. Coming from 18 months living in the devoutly muslim far northern part of the country, it was quite surreal to wander around the grounds of the abbey and listen to the christian liturgical kora music coming from this group of african and european monks. A wonderful compliment to your Baaba Maal and Yousou NDour CDs!

Imagine Gregorian chant sung in French and Senegalese to the rhythms of modern Africa and you have a vague idea of how wonderful this CD is. Sometimes driving, sometimes sweetly lyrical, it's not particularly religious music (unless you want it to be). It is music that will calm you, thrill you, and transport you to another place, whatever place you're in. Thanks to Trance Planet for turning me on to the monks of Keur Moussa.

I attended a Sunday worship service and bought their "Aux Sources Jaillissantes" CD - it brings me peace and serenity whenever I play it. The organic sound of their native instruments brings a richness to sacred tunes not found in western music.

If you're into ethnic music, especially on the spiritual side, this may be your cup of tea. A group of African monks whose monastery was founded by a French community has transposed music for worship into their idiom. you can feel the joy within the hearts of the monks and you just want to dance!

One thing I have always loved about African church music is its joyfulness. (Another favorite of mine was the original Missa Luba which is no longer available unfortunately). The chant in this recording is fantastic. I love it!
