Sammus is crowdfunding a documentary about her life and music - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart
Sammus | from the “Qualified” music video

To say that local indie rapper Sammus is inspiring doesn’t begin to do her justice. In between making and producing music, touring, and pursuing a Ph.D., Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo, the artist behind Sammus, is working on making a documentary to share her stories and experiences.

Called Enongo, the finished product will be a feature-length documentary about Sammus’ life and music. The project is still in its beginning stages, and Sammus is running a crowdfunding campaign to make sure her story gets to be heard (as she points out on the Indegogo page, making a film is very expensive and a TON of work).

Sammus has faced a bit of bad luck lately that makes gathering support for the documentary all the more necessary. The last thing any touring musician should have to worry about is whether someone’s going to break into their car while they’re playing a show, but unfortunately, that happens all too often these days. As Sammus tweeteda few days ago, someone stole a bunch of merch out of her car and broke some gear in the process — including her signature cannon arm.

Visit the Indegogo page to support the documentary here. Listen to (and consider purchasing) Sammus’ music on Bandcamp. Sammus’ next Philly gig is June 2; find information here.
