Jamila Woods Enchants Us In Tiny Desk Concert

Jamila WoodsHeavn was one of my personal favorite projects of 2016. The 20-track album was a tender and inspirational ode to Black womanhood from its defiant tracks like “Very Blk” and “In My Name” to its use of the Assata chant and recollections of childhood hand games. The tracks still feel as fresh and ethereal two years later as they did then and apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. NPR invited Jamila to perform two tracks from the album in addition to “Giovanni” for their intimate Tiny Desk series. Watch above.
