Most recently, she graced NPR’s Tiny Desk with a mesmerizing showcase of her music, accompanied by a talented ensemble that brought her sound to life in new and enchanting ways.

With a lineup including a keyboardist, a harpist, background vocalists, and a drummer, Kelela’s performance was nothing short of a sonic journey. Led by music director Daniel Aged, this diverse group of musicians added layers of depth and emotion to Kelela’s already mesmerizing tracks.

Throughout the performance, Kelela seamlessly blended her classics with fresh arrangements, showcasing her versatility as a musician. Stripping her music down to its melodic core, she allowed her vocals to shine, captivating the audience with every note.

The synergy between Kelela and her ensemble was palpable, creating a universe of sound that was uniquely her own. Each musician brought their flair to the performance, contributing to the rich tapestry of sounds that filled the room.

Briley Harris on keys skillfully alternated between synths, rhodes, and piano, providing the perfect backdrop for Kelela’s vocals to soar. Ahya Simone’s harp added an ethereal quality to the performance, while Alayna Rodgers and Brittney Mills’ background vocals added depth and texture.

Brandon Donald’s drums provided a steady foundation, driving the rhythm forward with precision and energy. Together, this small army of musicians created a spellbinding experience that transported the audience into Kelela’s world.

Behind the scenes, a dedicated team of producers, directors, and engineers worked tirelessly to bring Kelela’s vision to life. From Bobby Carter’s production expertise to Kara Frame’s direction and editing, every detail was carefully crafted to ensure a seamless and unforgettable performance.

As the final notes faded away, it was clear that Kelela had once again proven herself to be a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Her Tiny Desk performance was not just a showcase of her talent, but a testament to her ability to continually evolve and innovate as an artist.
