Christina Shusho – Kando Ya Mito


Tanzanian gospel artist Christina Shusho delivers a poignant message of faith and solace in her song, “Kando Ya Mito,” which translates to “By the Rivers.” Drawing inspiration from the biblical story of the Israelites’ exile in Babylon, the song explores themes of displacement, longing for home, and ultimately, finding refuge in faith.

Shusho’s emotive vocals paint a picture of longing and despair as she sings of the Israelites’ exile by the rivers of Babylon. The lyrics capture the essence of their displacement, the yearning for their homeland Jerusalem, and the pain of being separated from everything familiar.

However, “Kando Ya Mito” transcends the narrative of mere hardship. As the song progresses, it shifts focus to the enduring power of faith. Shusho reminds listeners that even in the face of adversity, God remains a constant source of strength and solace. The lyrics evoke the image of hanging harps on willow trees, symbolizing the inability to sing God’s praises while in exile.

This powerful imagery underlines the importance of holding onto faith even when faced with challenges that make it difficult to express it openly. The song reminds us that even in the midst of displacement and hardship, our connection to the divine remains unbroken.
