Nilüfer Yanya returns with another Tiny Desk Concert session, this time performing tracks that she has yet to play live as well as a brand new song.
By: Sun Noor
After opening her set with “Heat Rises,” Yanya spoke out about feeling unsettled with the idea of self-promotion in a time of high racial tensions, especially towards black people and people of colour in general. She then began to play “Paralyzed,” a track she has yet to play live as she felt it relates to the theme of injustice. Yanya also debuted a brand new song titled “Day 7,” which perfectly fit well with the selection o songs she decided to play. Her set culminates with a beautiful rendition of “Heavyweight Champion of the Year.”
