Rina Mushonga

Electronic/Afro-pop artist Rina Mushonga combines light-fingered electro- and synth pop with tumbling African rhythms and a rich, swooping vocal style reminiscent of Tracy Chapman and Joan Armatrading, particularly on her second album, 2019’s In a Galaxy.

  • “Thinking big suits Mushonga, and over the course of this 12-track LP, she dramatizes the banal trappings of daily life with her fortifying melodies, making a case for maximalist, ecstatic pop as a balm for it all.”
