Pascal-Emmanuel Sinamoyi Tabu (13 November 1937 or 1940 – 30 November 2013), better known as Tabu Ley Rochereau, was a leading African rumba singer-songwriter from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He was the leader of Orchestre Afrisa International, as well as one of Africa's most influential vocalists and prolific songwriters.

Muzina is not as flashy an album as some which the band had done in the past, but the multi-part rhythms on the CD are as sinuous as ever. The title track is by far the finest, mainly thanks to the beautiful harmonies on the a cappella introduction, which are repeated later with the full band backing the singers. Muzina is melodic and enjoyable, but rarely intense.
