Protoje has blessed us with musical bliss this fall while he was perched in the hills of Irish Town on the fringe of Kingston, Jamaica. Protoje teamed up with NPR and welcomed us into his backyard for a uniquely fresh spin on a Tiny Desk (home) Concert.
The music is invigorating and uplifting. You can feel the vibes when he speaks to his spiritual philosophy and faith on “Deliverance” with a chorus stating, “I hold my order, give my praises / Oh Jah, deliver me through these days, Jah deliver me / Sometimes really hard to go and face it / Oh this life can truly be amazing, amazing.”
The accompanying songs in this performance, “Strange Happenings” and “Same So”, are also featured on his latest and fifth album, In Search of Lost Time. He wraps his performance with his most recognizable chart-topping hit, “Who Knows,” which featured Chronixx on the original recording.
Check out Protoje’s Tiny Desk Concert and enjoy the vibez!
