The NRIs – Across The River

Nayan Bhula’s folk-rock ensemble The NRIs show their love for and excellent taste in DC landmarks in their new video for “Across The River”. While singing about familiar facets of living in this town, Bhula and his guitar take a tour of landmarks including Fort Reno and the Sunday drum circle at Meridian Hill Park. The long-gestating video accompanies the pay-whatever-you-want 2012 EP The Charm.


The NRIs – The Streets (NPR Tiny Desk submission)

If you recognize the desk in this video, pat yourself on the back for winning the obscure DC music trivia question of the week. This is Nayan Bhula’s big guitar, brass and keys ensemble The NRIs doing “The Streets”, the leadoff track from their most recent EP Playground, in their secret rehearsal space, for NPR Music & All Songs Considered’s Tiny Desk contest. The NRIs always put on a fantastic show, so don’t miss their next one at the Velvet Lounge on Wednesday February 11th with their new friends Feral Conservatives and EastWestHwy.
