Rising singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rina Mushonga has shared her first effort of 2017, “AtalantA,” a vibrant and powerful electro-Afropop anthem for self-empowerment, independence and transformation. The Dutch-Zimbabwean artist recruited producer Brett Shaw (Florence + the Machine, Daughter) for her newest effort, the lead single on her forthcoming second LP. Similar to “AtalantA”–inspired by a Greek mythological figure from Ovid’s Metamorphosis that represents female strength and preservation–Rina Mushonga’s new record will explore her Afro-European heritage. Listen to “AtlantA” below.
