Anchor Lisa Mullins speaks with Tom Schnabel of station KCRW in Santa Monica, California, about the late Peruvian singer Yma Sumac. She was known to Americans in the 1950's as "The Nightingale of the Andes" and "The Peruvian Songbird."
Tom Schnabel's DJ pick for today is vintage music from Cotonou, Benin. It's music recorded in the 1960s and 70s that has never been released in the United States before. The 2-CD set is part of a series called AfroLatin.
