EMOTiO – Meghna Chakrabarti (Tiny Desk Contest)

Progressive jazz/funk group EMOTiO prove their far-out bona fides by labelling their sound as Vegan Space Metal Bubblebath Jazz Rock&Roll&Spaghetti&Meatballs Gutter Funk. Their recent EP Live at Milkboy shows their propensity to title songs after famous and semi-famous women (“Angela Bassett”, “Jennette McCurdy”). The basement recording for NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest is “Meghna Chakrabarti”, which sent us to Wikipedia to discover she is a Boston-based NPR journalist and the host of WBUR’s call-in show On Point. Shout-out to rapper AliReza for sneaking into the middle of the song and delivering rhymes straight from his phone.
