Post an NPR link to a Tiny Desk concert you love....

... and maybe a sentence or two about why you like it. (Use the NPR link, not the YouTube link if you can.) 

My first pick: Ladama:

This set took me totally by surprise and it tore me up. I love Latin music of all kinds and this group of women are from Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil and New York. What soul, what great grooves, what a liberation spirit. Irresistible. I love it. (At 18 mins. it's a bit longer than other concerts.)

Here's one more amazing TD concert.

Jacob Collier. A millennial genius of sound and soul. And voice. And technology.

If you like him, check this out. It's a gas. All voices are his. Dozens of overdubs. Maybe hundreds. And then this cover of Moon River. Amazing. So many voices.

Here's Gina Chavez. After seeing her Tiny Desk, which I found intoxicatingly  wonderful, I went to see her last night in the city. So great  She had a trombone along with the trumpet last night. She rocked out a bit, including a fabulous bilingual cover of "I Will Survive."

Here's Sunny War's Tiny Desk. Amazing guitar playing; not a strum in the entire gig.
