CD Reviews

Beautiful, Serene and Unique
12/29/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Wonderfully peaceful, meditative franco-senegalese fusion

"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!"
