Raphael Saadiq spielt ein Tiny Desk Concert bei NPR Music

Der unfassbare Raphael Saadiq geht mir gerade unglaublich gut rein. Sein Tiny Desk Concert mitsamt Band ist genau das Richtige für diesen Tag. Das kann man richtig gut mal durchlaufen lassen.

“And honestly we were kinda complaining about it,” Saadiq laughs, recalling that performance in 2009, back when hosting intimate little concerts behind Bob Boilen’s desk was still a fledgling idea at NPR Music. “Like, we kinda didn’t wanna do it,” he admits in hindsight. It wasn’t until the video-taped version of his set hit the Internet and began picking up views that the lightbulb went off for Saadiq, too. “It’s like probably the biggest streaming I ever had, so it’s kinda good to be back — not kinda good; it’s really good to be back.”
