South African singer-songwriter Bongeziwe Mabandla released his second album right as the pandemic started taking hold of the world and lockdowns rolled out around the world. Made as a meditation on a relationship that didn’t work out, the album, titled iimini, loosely meaning days, tracked the romance from its bright start to the grief of its demise. With each song acting as a chapter in the book of their story together, Bongeziwe brought out all the passion and pain that comes from opening one’s heart to another. His voice, the balm to calm and soothe even the saddest of hearts that, during a time of quarantine, had nowhere else to go but in.
