Keur Moussa Monastery

 Keur Moussa Benedictine Monastery, near Lac Rose on the road to Kayar, Senegal
The monastery is famous for its Gregorian-style chants in Latin, French, and Wolof
 Keur Moussa, after the Sunday Mass and chant

 The cementary for the brothers, next to the monastery

One of the few places I have seen in Senegal (advertisements included) 
depicting Africans and not individuals of African ethnicity with lighter skin

What do the brothers sound like?
