Africa born and Australia based singer-songwriter and poet Sampa the Great (Sampa Tembo) expresses herself through music, poetry and visual art. She captures listeners with thought provoking words, while encouraging people to enjoy the simplicity of creativity.
With her 2015 released mixtape “The Great Mixtape” and following series of EPs and singles she has attracted an increasing swell of support worldwide. After recently joining Big Dada recordings, she now delivers her amazing new mixtape “Birds And The BEE9”. Working with a close circle of producers to help realise her musical vision – including Kwes Darko, Sensible J and Alejandro ‘JJ’ Abapo – spanning spiritually-minded gospel and chants to neo-soul and hip-hop, it’s intertwined with a clearly-defined, no-holds-barred political outlook, and speaks a message of healing after her own experiences of hurt and pain.
