WHO MADE Half-Burundian, half-Rwandan, Miss Erica grew up in Kigali in Rwanda, where she became established as a musical talent. But this wasn’t enough, and when Miss Erica finally arrived in Burundi to take over its musical scene, the field was hers for the taking. She’s only just starting but has already made a breakout hit, as well as a sizzling collaboration with Sat-B.
WHY YOU NEED TO LISTEN: Miss Erica’s catchy songs, where the language of love oscillates between French, Kirundi, and Swahili, will refuse to leave your head if you give them a listen. While definitely a perfect fit for romantic dates, they’re not just soppy ballads, but upbeat, empowering tracks. Miss Erica’s voice is unique, deep, and voluptuous, and while she could easily find success in any other genre of music, it’s framed perfectly by unexpectedly dropping afro-beats.
