Esperanza Spalding: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert
I was super excited to see NPR drop this video of Esperanza Spalding performing on their Tiny Desk (Home) Concert program.
“Enter into esperanza spalding’s safe space for healing through music and song with a Tiny Desk (home) concert of selections from her. A constant iteration of evolutionary ideas, her songwriting workshop is both a bold examination of human existence and resilience and a guided research collaboration with a collective of musicians and researchers in the practices of neuroscience, psychology and music therapy. All Formwelas (songs) from the S.A.L. are created through our research, divination, intuition, musicianship, taste, inspiration, and collaborative effort to design songs that enhance a specific salutary affect,” Spalding writes on her project site
This music is from Spalding’s Songwrights Apothecary Lab project.
