I think libc++ would be a much better choice. Even if it ends up being
more work, it's actually modern/up-to-date and it's a library
everybody wants to support anyway. And it purportedly aims to be
portable (not sure if this is really true), so it shouldn't be so bad
to get it working with musl.

I know several people have experimented with using llvm/clang with
musl, but I don't know what the status on libc++ is.
