Watch Farruko’s Tiny Desk live performance : NPR


From Sept. 15 via Oct. 15, Tiny Desk is celebrating Latinx Heritage Month with an El Tiny takeover, that includes Jessie Reyez, Susana Baca and extra musicians from all corners of Latinidad.

Final yr, Farruko’s tune “Pepas” felt nearly omnipresent. The bacchanalian occasion anthem for getting trashed on the membership appeared to blast out from each passing automobile and bodega I walked by. However since releasing the tune, Carlos Reyes aka Farruko, has undergone a religious transformation, even renouncing the tune’s message and taking the time to concentrate on his household and his creating relationship with God.

His Tiny Desk displays this new perspective. At NPR HQ, Farruko tailored his quintessential move to a way more intimate setting, one which highlights the hanging pivot from the party-filled life-style described in a lot of his earlier catalog. As an alternative of musings on medicine, perreo and extra, he opens his set with “En La Mía (Remix)” — an introspection on the therapeutic energy of music and religion — earlier than transferring onto a (revised) rendition of “Pepas,” that concentrates on the constraints of fame and staying true to your self.

He emphasizes the significance of counting your blessings in “No Entienden,” reflecting on previous errors in “My Lova” and the brand new monitor “Viaje” and spreading positivity in “Gracias (Remix).” It is a perfect send-off for this yr’s Latinx Heritage Month — blessings por nuestras herencias and hope for the long run.
