Mark this one in your notebooks, Sampa The Great is a very exciting new name out of Melbourne. Her music is her poetry, wrapped in a warm melange of jazzy saxophones, on-point beats and her driving voice both singing and rapping. She already has a great mixtape under her name from 2015 and this month will see the release of her very personal new mixtape Birds And The BEE9 via the infamous Big Dada, Nov 10th.
Her latest single Bye River is attached below and the good news don't end there. Team Sampa is on tour in relevant parts of Europe this month, playing Cologne's Yuca this Friday, Nov. 3rd, Hamburg's Häkken on Saturday 4th, and then Berlin's Cassiopeia on Sunday 5th. Next up are stops in Paris on Monday Nov 6th, London Nov 8th, find them all nicely listed here. Team Poule says, right on the spot.
