Nice informal footage from 19
9493 of Leonard Cohen rehearsing in Ghent, Belgium with his band and the angelic accompaniment of the tour's two backup singers from Ojai, Julie Christensen and Perla Batalla. "My favorite time of day....soundcheck!," Batalla posts on Facebook. She performs at the Broad Stage in her hometown of Santa Monica on May 5, singing Mexican songs for Cinco de Mayo. A round of La Llorona perhaps?
* Update: "Aww, this was really sweet to watch, and brought back great memories," Christensen posts on Facebook. She notes that the video poster got the year wrong: "Would've been spring of 1993."
