Watch Aminé's Chill and Cheerful 'Tiny Desk' Performance

The Ethiopian artist is the latest artist to perform on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

Ethiopian MC, Aminé, is the latest artist to appear on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

The artist began his nearly 13 minute performance with a playful mashup of his recent single "Spice Girl" and "Caroline" from his album Good For You.


Later in his performance, the musician slowed things down and ran through a soulful rendition of "Slide" and an upbeat version of "Wedding Crashers" after that. Backed by a 4-part band and a vibrant back up vocalist, Aminé delivers a chill and cheerful performance.

Check it out below, and revisit our recent interview with the artist, where he discussed repping for Ethiopia and dressing up as Erykah Badu for Halloween.
