Sing on Saturday – Songs from Benin and Santo Domingo

microphoneEvery Saturday there will be a song from around the world. Today we have two. The first is a wonderfully cheery song from Juan Luis Guerra, a native of the Dominican Republic. The second is a haunting melody from Angelique Kidjo, who hails from Benin. Both of these musicians are cultural icons in and beyond their homelands. They are also activists who have embraced a message for the need to change, to make the world a better place.
