 African Music November 5, 2012 By Andrei S. (Napier, Hawkes Bay) See All My Reviews "This is very pleasant music. It is a setting of the Latin Mass to Congolese melodies. Anyone looking for something different - ie different from European church music - will enjoy this." Report Abuse
 african music at its best October 3, 2012 By dimitri b. See All My Reviews "I first heard Missa Luba on an old LP. I was immediately enthralled by the young voices and the African rhythm. It just shows that you can worship the Lord in many different ways." Report Abuse
