If you’re an avid listener of Helado Negro’s music, you may have already familiarized yourself with the smooth, delicate, and trancelike components found in his 2016 Private Energy album.
His performance at NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert, however, uncovers a raw, unembellished sound that invites listeners into a more intimate space with the artist and his identity, bearing in mind three simple yet significant words he proudly advocates on his shirt:
“Young, Latin and Proud”
Watch Helado Negro’s performance below and catch him at The Regent on August 17 with Nancy Sanchez.
