Camila Cabello: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

  • Am

    NPR MusicNPR Music

    From Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, Tiny Desk is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with an "El Tiny" takeover of the (home) concert series, featuring J Balvin, Camila Cabello and several more musicians from all corners of Latinidad.

    Anamaria Sayre | October 15, 2021
    To the beat of her swishing hips and swaying percussionists, Camila Cabello's famous "Half of my heart is in Havana" reverberates across this musician-packed Miami set, with an at-home ease that feels novel for the global popstar.

    Born to a Cuban mother and Mexican father in Havana, Cuba, Cabello is no stranger to blending borders and connecting worlds. As the final performance in our Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, her El Tiny concert epitomises the cross-cultural, transnational musical identities we've centered over the course of the series. Each unique arrangement of her universal hits represents and explores a new facet of the identities and experiences that make up Cabello.

    These stripped-down renditions of her hits "Havana," "Real Friends," "Señorita" and "Don't Go Yet" include more Latin instrumentation than the recordings - presumably bringing them closer to sounds that were first introduced to her as music during her childhood in Havana, Mexico City, and Miami.

    The interlude featuring a sacred Afro-Cuban Santería chant and the following performance of the unreleased, Mariachi-based "La Buena Vida," firmly root Cabello's El Tiny performance within two cultural traditions that don't typically glitter under the harsh lights of a global stage.

    Here, we find Camila on the precipice of a voice that magically layers pop with tradition, holding all parts of a complex identity in seamless harmony. Flanked by Cuban congueros and Mexican mariachi, all aglow under the Miami sun, Camila Cabello's heart has never felt more whole.

Funny that she talks about discovering great new artists on Tiny Desk, will now she is one of them for me. That song with the mariachi band was incredibly creative, like a whole new genre. Loved Havana, Senorita and the rest. Such a true artist to perform so well while under the weather a bit.

Camila nacio en cuba, pero su infacia se vio devidida entre cuba y mexico. Asi q ella conoce ritmos de ambos paises a los q concidera su patria. No la hace menos cubana el interprertar ritmos mexicanos y viceversa.. al contrario ella nunca a demeritado a ningun pais y siempre comenta sobre lo orgullosa q esta de esa mezcla multicultural q la caracteriza

Con seguridad el peor Tinydesk que he visto, esta hiper producido, tiene errores de montaje donde incluso la voz no va acorde con la imagen, en definitiva no acaba de sentirse como un directo real, todo se ve preparado y artificioso, esta claro que los músicos y Camila hacen un buen trabajo, eso no lo pongo en duda, todo suena increíble y Camila muestra un buen arsenal de recursos con su voz, el problema esta en como se ha envuelto el paquete, que hace que el resultado final para mi sea insatisfactorio, por poner un ejemplo de pésima producción, minuto 17:48 a 17:50, hay un micro corte que no se entiende el porque esta ahí, porque es que ni siquiera la cámara se mueve del lugar, no se que salió mal en ese momento en la grabación que han tenido que cortarlo y editarlo para después enlazarlo con el sonido, y de este tipo de cosas el video esta plagado, en fin, una pena, porque si es un concierto, todo debe sentirse como eso, como algo en vivo y sin corta y pegas de edición de video, al final sientes que te están vendiendo algo que no es, y es una pena, porque no creo que a ninguno de los artistas que salen en el video les haga falta una producción así.

Guys.. Camila literally told us in her new song the reasons why she broke up with Shawn 15:56 Listen to the lyrics closely....

Losing out on a woman like Camila is a loss. She is the real deal. Having met her twice , she has that aura of real , confident, genuine , supportive love. And I love her connection with her culture and her family. She is wise and mature beyond her years , knows what she wants and maybe was looking for that in her partner as well. Maybe Shawn is still on his journey to figure out things. Hope they cross paths and find each other again. Love nevertheless. Though I ak very excited for her music. Consequences and This love gave me heartbreaks.

I immediately heard these red flags back when she put out this video OCT 15, but didn't comment much of it bc she and Shawn looked still stable, but I 100% thought "Oh boy, are Shawn and Camila gonna split?" And here we are today, NOV 18 where they put on their instagram stories news of their split. I still think this song tells it all, or at least a good chunk of the reason for the split. What do y'all think?
