K'Naan NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Hay HIP-HOP mas alla de Eminem... y el resto de "habitantes del cielo musical de los discos de platino..."
Though his appearance at the NPR Music office qualifies as the first-ever hip-hop Tiny Desk Concert, Somali-born rapper K'naan isn't one to adhere to a single genre. Given that he released a song called "If Rap Gets Jealous" earlier this year, it's no surprise that this show found him infusing his music with the sounds of soul, pop and reggae. With the help of a crack backing band, his three-song set — all drawing from this spring's marvelous Troubadour, proves what we've been saying for months, K'naan has the makings of a global superstar who's as inspiring as his songs are infectious.

"Fatima," "Wavin' Flag," and "Take a Minute."

Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Uno no puede evitar sonreir y recordar con esa sonrisa la última concion de "La vida de Brian" al escucharlos...y tambien recordar el espíritu de alegria de vivir...vale la pena perder un ratito de tiempo en escuchar este acustico coral...
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros can't exactly slip into an office building unnoticed: Clad in the same clothes they'd worn at a concert the night before, the L.A. band's 10 ragtag misfits would have fit in far more seamlessly at, say, Burning Man. Seeming to exist in a blissed-out alternate universe — during the wonderful "Home," singer Jade Castrinos exclaims, "Good morning, everybody!" as the clock behind her reads 2:10 p.m. — this is a band whose performances beg to be seen as well as heard, not to mention shot through a wide-angle lens.

The biggest band to play a Tiny Desk Concert - the 10 members of The Magnetic Zeroes played three songs from their debut album (Up From Below).

The set included:
- Janglin
- Home
- 40 Day Daydream

NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert: The Heligoats

The Heligoats' Chris Otepka is the star of NPR Music's 100th Tiny Desk Concert. In many ways, he's the perfect act to mark that milestone: His music is best heard in an intimate setting, where his words can unfurl clearly and he can hold a small room rapt -- which he does here, to say the least.

Set List:
"Goodness Gracious"
"I'm Pretty Sure I Can See Molecules"
"A Guide to the Outdoors"
"Fish Sticks"
I remember...Bob Dylan while I see...

Fuegos del Apostol 2009 y 2010

Aunque las comparaciones son odiosas, para aquellos que gustan de establecer una trayectoria o un criterio en todo proceso una vez que han visto los de este año 2011 aqui os dejo los de los dos años anteriores tanto los del 2009, hace dos años, como los del año pasado 2010 año santo...
Estos son los fuegos del Apostol que transcurren todos los años en Santiago de Compostela en la noche del 24 al 25 de Julio, el año 2010 "eran especiales" al tratarse de año santo, no habrá otros iguales hasta el año 2021

Tantoen los del 2009 como en los del 2010 si se puede apreciar la quema de la fachada mudéjar que este año no tuvo lugar, de la misma manera se aprecia una evolución en el uso de los medios audiovisules...

Fuegos del Apostol 2011

Por primera vez en muchos años durante los "fuegos del Apostol" no hubo "fuegos", la quema de la tradicional fachada mudéjar se sustituyó por un moderno espectáculo de luz y sonido con imagenes en "3D", sin entrar a valorar la sustitución de las "tradiciones" por las recientes nuevas tecnologías, el espectáculo fue bonito y agradó a la gran mayoría de los que llenaban la plaza y de los que los vieron por sus monitores....
