The subject of today's Global Hit is singer Lokua Kanza. He's from the Democratic Republic of Congo, in central Africa. Kanza has a new album out. And regular contributor Tom Schnabel says it's a winner.
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.
