Vivid LIVE: Sampa The Great presents An Afro Future
Imagining a world of creativity and culture beyond the confines of colonialism, hip-hop star Sampa The Great brings together a collective of artists for an exclusive performance in the Joan Sutherland Theatre at Sydney Opera House.
In just a few short years, Zambian-born singer, poet and visual artist Sampa The Great has become one of the world’s most vital performers, electrifying and empowering audiences with her eclectic blend of hip-hop, neo-soul, jazz and Afrobeat – music that speaks to a shared vision of a possible future, in dialogue with the cultural heritage and experiences of the Black Diaspora.
Sampa blew up with her mixtape Birds and the BEE9, which won the prestigious Australian Music Prize for Best Album of 2017 and saw her go on to earn praise from the likes of Lauryn Hill and Kendrick Lamar, while her smash 2019 debut, The Return, collected multiple ARIA awards and a second Australian Music Prize for album of the year.
Sampa’s ‘An Afro Future’ unites a host of artists for a huge night of music that both reckons with displacement and celebrates the culture of tomorrow.
