Review: Sampha @ The Forum, Melbourne (29/05/2017)

Sampha
w/ PAULi
Monday 29th of May, 2017 – The Forum, Melbourne

Rough setlist:

Plastic 100°C
Timmy’s Prayer
Under
Too Much
Take Me Inside
Reverse Faults
Incomplete Kisses
Happens
Kora Sings
Blood On Me
(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano

Encore:
Without
Indecision

 

 

The soulful voice of Sampha filled up The Forum beginning with ‘Plastic 100°C’. This was also the first time I had been to The Forum to see the new look, which was the theater seating being gutted out and replaced with a much more suitable standing room at the back of the venue.

Highlights from Sampha and his band were tracks ‘Timmy’s Prayer’ and the punchy ‘Blood On Me’, but it was hard to top the smooth profound performance of ‘No One Knows Me) Like The Piano’

 

 

In the encore, Sampha and his band mates huddled around a mini drum kit and and launched into ‘Without’.

Rating: 7.5/10
