NPR's Tiny Desk Contest: On The Road with O'She Tyght, Yah Yah, Alto Moon
From the venue:
“Music can create this intangible space where everyone belongs — beyond borders, beyond boundaries, beyond labels — where we’re just people with all of our complicated, beautiful, painful lives, sharing the experience of taking in the music. It’s a space of connection. Real connection.”
Alisa Amador is a connector. Her upcoming EP, Narratives, is a six-song snapshot in time. It’s a deep look at a person stumbling through life in two languages — English and Spanish — and in many states of mind about it all. Alisa’s crystal-clear vocals are so effortless throughout Narratives that it’s almost easy to forget how technically talented she is, until she moves from almost-spoken-word territory to a powerful chorus without hesitation or illustrates a repetitive refrain that’s so affecting it feels like you might want to live inside it for a little while.
