Following the success of her last year’s EP, “Heroes, Act 2”, Sampa Tembo put out another mixtape, but this time for the iconic Big Dada label.
Incorporating many influences – soul, gospel, jazz – it further develops her unique take on hip hop. With its lush sound and unhurried delivery, “The Bird and the BEE9” highlights Tembo’s keen sense of rhythm and melody, presenting a full-fledged artistic vision of her own.
The results of this process are captivating. This is deeply spiritual music at its very best.
