Stylin’: Sampa the Great on Creating Her First Live Score
Ennio Styles chats to Sampa the Great about the contemporary music scene in Africa; her upcoming collaboration with Zambian artists; and her first live score, happening on Saturday 3 August as part the Hear My Eyes series at MIFF. Sampa, along with her band, will provide the soundtrack for Girlhood, a coming-of-age story about a young black woman in Paris, who is finding her identity, while also facing the challenges of her living conditions. ‘I cannot stress how excited I am to go into this avenue of expression,’ Sampa says.
