C&L's Late Nite Music Club With By Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin

John is always yelling at me for not including enough religious music. We both know people are looking for inspiration and passion but sometimes we look in different places. Yesterday I dug up something exquisite, the Missa Luba by Les Troubadours du Roi Baudouin, which I used to listen to when I was high in college and didn't want to study. It's the Latin mass done by a choir of Congolese children. (Roi Baudouin was the awful King of Belgium who owned the Congo and ran it like a plantation.) "Sanctus" and "Benedictus" were U.K. hits but the album never got too far in the U.S.-- except among college stoners. The album recently came out on CD and if you like this song, you'll like the whole thing. Lucas and I put the clip together especially for ya.
