Hopefully it’s not news to you that today is Election Day here in the United States, and while the lines may be long, trust me, you still have time to vote. And if you’re looking for a perfect playlist addition to tide you over, either while waiting to cast your ballot or just to pass the time until a decision is made, look no further than Shungudzo.
Born Alexandra Shungudzo Govere in rural Zimbabwe and now calling California her home, the songwriter-producer began releasing her variety of folk and pop back in 2017, quickly attracting features from well-known artists outside of the US, primarily from the UK and Europe. Last Friday Shungudzo dropped a concise but conceptually brilliant and empowering EP, I (motsi), and the album opener, “It’s a good day (to fight the system)”, will do its best to keep your head bobbin’ through the foreseeable future.
