Reenacted on stage with some of the most emotionally-intelligent and culturally-influential black artists, "Treasure" turns into a live relationship.
Sampha's live televised performances are few and far between.
It seems like he is always silently working on something emotive and remarkable in the background. But when he finally does face the camera, the moment is heart wrenching and unforgettable. You are surrounded by his full, delicate yet unwavering voice, like walking into a dimly lit room.
Last week, he appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, along with a flurry of some of his magnificent musical friends. Kelsey Lu, Robert Glasper, serpentwithfeet and Kamasi Washington joined Sampha on stage in a moment of beautiful, monumental harmony.
They came together to perform Sampha's latest, "Treasure," written for Beautiful Boy, the Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet film on a father-son relationship.
