Sampa The Great: Flowers Sampa The Great's deeply personal recording is fully influenced by her background. She was born in Zambia, raised in Botswana, and just four years ago relocated to Australia. It was there that she honed her idea of what she wanted to create. The perfect foil for the self-aware and spiritually minded track is "Flowers."
Nabihah Iqbal: Eden Piece Also known as Throwing Shade, Nabihah Iqbal ditched her moniker in favor of her given name in order to stand proudly as a British-Asian artist. On Iqbal's first LP she approached the sessions with an open mind recording all of the instruments herself, as well as writing the lyrics. "Eden Piece" is a standout track that you'll hear on our music shows.
