Zaire has yet to produce any international pop stars, but Lokua Kanza’s airy tenor and delicate wandering melodies should carry him beyond his native Africa. Wapi Yo‘s two English-language cuts are weakest, by virtue of their saccharine lyrics; it’s the songs in French, Swahili, and Lingala — soft soul tunes in the vein of Seal and Des’ree — that most eloquently speak the language of the human heart.
