LES TROUBADOURS DU ROI BAUDOUIN - MISSA LUBA
So, yesterday I posted this fine album, a lovely mix between traditional music from Congo and Christian music. I got a mail from Peter Graute, musician, producer, collector and the former owner of one of the greatest record stores my city of birth Rotterdam ever had, Backstreet Records, the place where I bought many, many punk albums when I was a 14, 15 year old kid back in the 70's...
He send me a link to this article:
What it says is that this record was one of the 10 records that influenced the members of Led Zeppelin!!! This record was the life-work of Belgium missionary Father Guido Haazen, who started a choir with 60 Congolese kids and called it Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin. They performed at the World-fare in 1958 and they became very succesful. The Clash were also influenced by this record....
I had no idea!!! So, thanks Peter for letting me know about this!!!!
I posted this with mediafire and OF COURSE they messed up the link, so here's another link:
