Photo Diary | Sampa The Great
What do Zambia, Botswana and Australia have in common? Sampa The Great is a poet, songwriter and visual artist marrying three of these diverse cultures and bringing their influence into music. Now based in Melbourne, the artist is writing and releasing EP’s and mixtapes with strong political messaging (Sampa has a clearly-defined, no-holds-barred political outlook) weaved into hip hop beats and South African sounds — a tribute to her cultural background.
