Vox Sambou: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

457 Weergaven 46K

Every January, I attend globalFEST at a New York City nightclub and see some of the most fantastic music I'll experience all year. Now, given the pandemic's challenges and the hardening of international borders, NPR Music and globalFEST moved the 2021 edition from the nightclub to your screen of choice and shared the festival with the world. We called it Tiny Desk Meets globalFEST. We presented 16 artists in intimate settings (often behind desks donning globes), all hosted by African superstar Angélique Kidjo.
There are few performers as "alive" as Vox Sambou, whose energy and soul transcends the virtual space. He starts his performance at Tiny Desk Meets globalFEST with a short moment between himself and his son, overseen by a painting of his mother, highlighting the ways we pass down traditions from generation to generation. Based in Montreal, Quebec, Vox Sambou writes and performs in Hatian-Creole, French, English, Spanish and Portuguese. His music is a joyous fusion of Haitian funk, reggae and hip-hop.

    ¡Cuánto poder! Alucinante, contundente, diciente (aún sin entender la letra, el sentido de lucha y resistencia es evidente). No quería que terminara... Maravilloso! Gracias ✨🎼💚

    The camera work is too busy. I love the music but find it hard to watch because as soon as I start to focus on one thing the image switches. Just get one or two angles of the whole group and leave it at that. Treat your audience like adults not teenagers with zero focus.
