Lau Noah is having a Tiny moment…
The Spanish singer-songwriter and guitarist, among a new wave of Spanish artists making their mark globally, is the latest act to give a Tiny Desk Concert at the National Public Radio offices.
Noah, who is enchanting music lovers one song at a time, flaunted her poetic lyrics and magical flamencoguitar riffs in a nearly 16-minute set that included five songs, wrapping with “La Realidad.”
According to NPR, she speaks and sings in Catalan, Spanish, English and sometimes Hebrew. She played the piano growing up and left Spain for New York City five years ago while still a teen.
“There’s a language we speak in the Northeast of Spain called Catalan in a region called Catalonia, this is where I come from,” she said during her performance before delivering her song “L’Adéu.” “And for many years I only sang in English because I was too scared of what they would say if I sang in my mother language. I’m not anymore. I’m really happy to share a song in Catalan with you.”
