Black Coffee guests on NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk (Home)’ [Watch]
Over recent months, NPR‘s coronavirus-adapted Tiny Desk (Home) series has continued the Tiny Desk live programming tradition initially etched into place in 2008. The show must go on, after all, to keep the viewers at home safely entertained, and NPR has risen to the extended occasion with Tiny Desk (Home) installments from Dua Lipa, Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign (name a more iconic duo, we’ll wait), Tame Impala, Billie Eilish, and more. Now, Black Coffee joins the Tiny Desk (Home) ranks to take fans of his recent LP, Subconsciously, as close as they can get to a live post-album stint—for the time being.
Threaded with live instrumentation, the Tiny Desk (Home) iteration stations the South African influencer within the auditorium of the National School of Arts in Johannesburg. Of note, Black Coffee enlisted the assistance of students with a production internship to bring the event to fruition, according to NPR. “Flava” and “Wish You Were Here”—both of Subconsciously—pepper the 20-minute affair, which commences with “You Rock My World.” The short-and-sweet bit is available below.
