NPR Music – Tiny Desk Concerts
NPR Music is a radio company with a few different radio channels, but what’s special about NPR Music? NPR Music has a great collection of live music of classic artists from way back. My favourite they do is definitely their collection of live band hip hop with some of the most influential artists to ever live, including Rakim, GZA, the rest of the Wu-Tang Clan and Smif N Wessun.
The name of these performances is called ‘Tiny Desk Concerts’ and they are performed within an office with a small crowd of bystanders. This gives all the performances quite a personal feel to them and lets the artist performing just do there thing and it always works out!
Below I’ve created a short playlist of my favourite videos from their Youtube so you can check them out for yourself!
I think these Tiny Desk Concerts are a great way to discover new artists or see your favourite artists in a different light and I love to stay tuned with them! I hope you enjoy these great artists doing what they do best!
