The rise of Sampa tembo has been swift and strong. It has been a little under a year since the Zambian born musician released her debut mix-tape and made a spectacular impression on tastemakers and punters alike.
Separating Sampa from her peers is the upbringing and life experiences that inform her lyrics. like her many influences – both musical and political – sampa hopes to inform and inspire, delivering her message in a way that is bold yet inclusive. “I’m great,” she proclaims not as a boast but instead a rallying call, “You’re great. We’re great.”
