Jhené Aiko: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
Oct. 1, 2020 | Bobby Carter -- In this Tiny Desk (home) concert, R&B star Jhené Aiko coasts through an eight-song medley that plays like the ultimate nod to her legions of fans - fans who've been begging for a Tiny Desk for a long time.
The Los Angeles native's star status is a result of her music's versatility and vulnerability. Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo has carved out a space of her own over the past decade, despite a rapidly changing R&B landscape. As a songwriter, she leaves no stone unturned, explicitly expressing her struggle, joy and sexuality while always administering the vibe.
Her latest album, Chilombo, released just before the pandemic hit the U.S., doubled down and leaned into the therapeutic nature of her songs - and that same aesthetic fuels her Tiny Desk. Backed by an ensemble of masked players, Aiko bookends her set with a sound bath of singing bowls that's peace personified through sound.

I was thinking how much I have been manifesting in this 3D plane and one of my crew spotted her in the venue and that was conformation that things manifest if you know that we call things into the conscious Awareness. I was benging her tracks one day and there she and her crew were two nights later right in the venue we performing in. I also met Mick Jagger another artist I've always wanted to meet and Chris Stapleton having to have a song that was really taking a chance by Storm Tennessee whiskey in addition and I wanted to find a Beagle to challenge so and manifested that also in the same
