Rina Mushonga – Atalanta ([PIAS]) 
Rina Mushonga - Atalanta

Release Date: Out Now

Quick introduction; Rina Mushonga is a Dutch-Zimbabwean artist who has recently relocated to London and has been working with an esteemed producer as well as writing some truly engaging music. ‘Atalanta’ is one such engaging song which the press sheet describes as wonky Afro-pop and, although I can see what they’re getting at, there’s a little more to this. Take a pinch of Laura Mvula, a slice of Florence + The Machine’s dramatic tendencies and mix it with some 80s pop instrumentation and you’re getting close to this one. Mushonga is an intriguing and fresh artist with more to say in one song than most achieve in an album so I urge you to give this some time and savour the flavours.
