TSHAYA\NGOMA_ is a virtual music journal founded in 2017. Meaning «hit that song» in Ndebele, TSHAYA\NGOMA_ aims to bring to the forefront the voices of music makers, music lovers and artists across the world, with an emphasis on creators of color. TSHAYA\NGOMA_ celebrates the world of audio through essays, poetics, dialogues, and sound arts. It aims not only to be a source of cultural and knowledge production, but celebration of what it means to experience sound: the pleasure and pain therein.
