Erykah Badu: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Aug. 15, 2018 | Felix Contreras — Some folks around the NPR Music office said they felt an almost spiritual connection to Erykah Badu during her visit to the Tiny Desk. And that was before she and her band even played a single note. It came from the waft of earthly scents that followed in her wake, to the flowing dreads and clothes that hung on her like robes.

After her self-introduction, which included a rundown of her spiritual and creative aliases, Badu rolled into one of her earliest musical calling cards, “Rimshot.” It’s an ode to the sound the percussionist makes when a drumstick is struck against the metal edge of the snare drum. On this performance, as on her 1997 album Baduizm, it becomes a device to play with time — stretching it, stopping it, suspending it. Propelled by jazz chords on the piano and the steady pulse of the acoustic bass, the playful performance unfolded in the tradition of the best bebop.

But the panoramic song “Green Eyes” is the centerpiece of Badu’s Tiny Desk performance. It’s wide-ranging in scope and musical arrangement and brilliantly executed by the jazz and hip-hop musicians in her backing band. The story of heartbreak is striking enough, but her interpretation showcases her formidable vocal skills. By the time it was over, we were all just as emotionally and spiritually spent as she was from the experience.

Erykah Badu is an artist for the ages. To old-school jazz fans like myself, names like Nina Simone, Betty Carter and Shirley Horn come to mind as much as Billie Holiday because of Badu’s singular approach to a lyric. They all cut their own creative path and left behind a legacy that you can identify with just one note. Erykah Badu is on that same path, and one day her name will be mentioned along with the other Elders who share her spirit of musical adventure.

Lyrics:
Take a trip into my garden
I’ve got so much to show ya
The fountains and the waters
Are begging just to know ya

And it’s true, baby
I’ve been saving this for you, baby

I guess it’s something like a fun fair
Put gas into the motor
And boy I’ll meet you right there
We’ll ride the rollercoaster

Cause it’s true, babe
I been saving this for you, baby

(I need you to)
Tell me right before it goes down
(Promise me you’ll)
Hold my hand if I get scared now
(Might tell you to)
Take a second baby slow it down
You should know I, you should know I

(Yeah I boom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom) just for you
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom), just for you

Come on baby play me like a love song
Every time it comes on
I get this sweet desire
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom), just for you

Now it’s the perfect season
Yeah, let’s go for it this time
We’re dancing with the trees and
I’ve waited my whole life

It’s true, baby
I been saving this for you, baby

(I need you to)
Tell me right before it goes down
(Promise me you’ll)
Hold my hand if I get scared now
(Might tell you to)
Take a second baby slow it down
You should know I, you should know I

(Yeah I boom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom) just for you
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom), just for you

Come on baby play me like a love song
Every time it comes on
I get this sweet desire
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom), just for you

Just for you
I bloom just for you
I bloom just for you

Baby, baby, I’ve been saving this for you, baby
Baby, baby, I’ve been saving this for you, baby

(Yeah I boom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom) just for you
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom), just for you

Come on baby play me like a love song
Every time it comes on
I get this sweet desire
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
(I bloom), just for you

Just for you
I bloom just for you
I bloom just for you
Just for you
I bloom just for you
I bloom just for you

What is it like being black in India? BBC News

What is it like being black in India?
That’s what BBC Pop Up wanted to find out after Benjamin Pratt, a student from Sierra Leone now living in India, told us that many African immigrants are victims of racism and prejudice.
BBC journalists Christian Parkinson and Vikas Pandey joined Benjamin on the streets of Delhi to find out more but ended up in a small village in the western state of Gujarat. There they discovered a surprising and little-known culture alive and well.
