Sampa The Great – The Return – Limited Edition, Red, Green, Colored Vinyl, Ninja Tune, 2019

Sampa the Great creates a sense of home on her debut album The Return on Ninja Tune. A characterful record, it’s reference points range from classic hip-hop to ancient Southern African sounds. Built on four years of personal and musical soul-searching, it’s an assured statement, the product of meaningful musical connections and of Sampa having to redefine her self-identity away from the comforts of family and old friends.
