“Cranes in the sky” an amazing cover by Sampha


Sampha surprises the audience of Glastonbury with an amazing cover of “Cranes in the sky”, an original song from Solange’s album A Seat at the Table.

Symbol of Soul and R’n’B

With her third album published the on 30th of september 2016, A seat at the Table, Solange has quickly become an emblematic figure of the R’n’B scene. With songs as committed as her and just as rhythmical she has marked the souls of people by becoming a relevant figure in R’n’B contemporary culture. Between the twenty one songs of her album, the song “Don’t touch my hair” featuring the soft voice of the twenty eight years old singer Sampha. With his fresh new album “Process” that came out this year, the young singer touches our hearts with his voice as soft as feathers and his magical piano. The song (“No One Knows Me”) Like the Piano is a track where you can appreciate his soulful and colorful voice that characterises him.

For this edition of the Glastonbury festival, we had the pleasure of listening to the incredible voice of Sampha. The festival, held in England, gathers lots of different artists but if we had to remember one song it will surely be Samphas cover of the song Cranes in the Sky by Solange. The result of this tribute to Beyonce’s sister is definitely worth listening to. With Samphas personality we hope that he will continu to blow our minds with this type of covers. Solange responded via Twitter to this cover by saying:

Crying, Sampha your voice and soul are unmatched.
