    Watch: Tigran Hamasyan Performs NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

    Tigran Hamasyan, whose new album, The Call Within, was released on Nonesuch Records in August, has performed an NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert. The set, filmed by Elena Petrosyan, includes solo piano takes on "Our Film," from the new album, which NPR Music's Suraya Mohamed calls Hamasyan's "most enterprising release,"and two earlier tunes. You can watch it below.

    "Tigran first wowed me in 2006," says Mohamed. "Earlier that year, he'd won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition and his performance at the John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts for NPR's annual Jazz Piano Christmas program was truly memorable. I've been following him and his robust discography ever since." You can read more at npr.org.

    You can pick up a copy of The Call Within and hear it now here. Hamasyan performs a set for the virtual EFG London Jazz Festival on Saturday night; tickets are available here.

    Rhiannon Giddens has released "Waterbound," a second track from her upcoming album with Francesco Turrisi, They’re Calling Me Home, out April 9. The song is a traditional fiddle tune first recorded in the 1920s that includes the refrain, "Waterbound, and I can't get home, down to North Carolina," capturing a central theme of the new album: longing for the comfort of home and family in this time of prolonged isolation. The video, which you can watch here, was filmed in Ireland and includes footage from the recording session that took place in a small studio on a working farm outside Dublin. The song and video also feature Congolese guitarist Niwel Tsumbu. Giddens says, “‘Waterbound’ is a song I learned a long time ago and it brings me forcefully home to North Carolina when I sing it, and considering that I am, indeed waterbound, and have been for a long time, it's a rare moment when a folk song represents exactly my situation in time.”

    Joachim Cooder was joined by his father, Ry Cooder, for a performance streamed from the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Saturday. They performed songs from Joachim Cooder's Nonesuch Records debut album, Over That Road I'm Bound. "My hope for tonight's performance is: we do something maybe that we've never done before," he says. "I like to let things take their own course and have each show be a little different. So I would like all my things to work and have everybody see something that they haven't seen somewhere else." You can watch the program, which also includes a set from Amythyst Kiah, here.
