Episodes

Little Simz  

Little Simz has been compared to Lauryn Hill for her self-reflective wordplay. And though the British lyricist is a relative new-comer, her Tiny Desk performance was poised and confident.

Agnes Obel  

Agnes Obel manipulated the Tiny Desk to better suit the deeply alluring and powerful music she brought to us.

Esmé Patterson  

Esmé Patterson has dropped the banjos and folk from her previous project Paper Bird — in their place, electric guitars and a backing band worth getting behind.

Run The Jewels  

Killer Mike and El-P continue to out-muse each other in a supergroup that somehow seems to get better, louder, and more pertinent since their start in 2013.

D.R.A.M.  

The rapper/singer storms the NPR Music offices, activating his signature smile and bouncing through five highlights from his catalog — including the smash single "Broccoli."

Gallant  

The rising R&B star performs three falsetto-drenched highlights from his 2016 debut, Ology — including "Bourbon," which features a guest rap from Chance The Rapper collaborator Saba.

Miramar  

Watch the Virginia band sweep the NPR crowd off its feet with a collection of exquisite boleros by Puerto Rican composer Sylvia Rexach.

BADBADNOTGOOD  

The jazz band, known for its soulful interpretations of songs by Nas and Ol' Dirty Bastard, plays its own new material live in the NPR Music offices.

Brent Cobb  

Cobb's words shimmer like a tall glass of sweet tea in the late-morning sun. Watch the country singer-songwriter perform four songs from his debut album.

Lila Downs  

With a voice that borrows heavily from opera, Downs performs the kind of full-throated mariachi singing that would fit right in at Mexico City's Garibaldi Square — ground zero for mariachi.

Donny McCaslin  

Hear McCaslin, the saxophonist and bandleader whose group backed David Bowie on Blackstar, near the anniversary of that album's release. Selections include an instrumental take on Bowie's "Lazarus."

Declan McKenna  

Hear the spirited young singer-songwriter take on religion, poverty and politics, armed with just a guitar and some unrelenting hooks.

The Oh Hellos: Holiday Tiny Desk Concert  

The nine-piece, family-centered band returns to the NPR Music offices to fill the air with fake snow and real joy.

Derek Gripper  

Inspired by Toumani Diabate, the classically trained South African guitarist performs songs originally written for the kora.

Gucci Mane  

The rapper has spent the year on an extended victory tour. Here are the spoils, recorded in a stripped-down set with a minimal backing track and longtime producer Zaytoven on keys.

Alsarah & The Nubatones  

In the band's hands, East African music pulses, breathes and comes alive in a mix of tradition and contemporary sounds.

Ro James  

Bringing the heat to the NPR Music offices, the R&B singer performs three funky, sexy, stripped-down songs from his debut album, Eldorado.

Pinegrove  

There's a confessional quality to the songs of Pinegrove that feels reassuring. Watch the New Jersey band squeeze four songs into a scrappy, warmhearted 13-minute set.

Margo Price  

On the morning after Election Day, the Nashville musician and her band visited the Tiny Desk to play three cathartic country songs loaded with new political meaning.
