Through the stay at home orders, we’re dedicated to bringing you new live performances. Each Tuesday and Thursday, we’ll share a live streaming performance through our new series, Live on KEXP at Home. Hosted by trusted KEXP DJs, musical guests perform sets live, either solo or with their quarantined partners. 

Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month

Throughout the month of May, KEXP is joining the national celebration of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM). This is a time for all of us to reflect, pay homage, and celebrate Asian and Pacific Islanders in our country, and their amazing feats and contributions to our shared history. Observing this Heritage Month is even more vital given the increase in hate crimes and racism directed towards Asian and Pacific Isander Americans in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. In response, we’re amplifying the voices and art of the communities targeted by xenophobia, sharing stories and performances, and more, all month long. Tune in throughout May to hear DJs play songs from APA artists and revisit some of our archived content below, with even more content here.

Perfect In My Mind: Chicago’s NNAMDÏ on BRAT, Blurring Genre and Making Art in a Turbulent World

If there’s anything consistent in Chicago artist NNAMDÏ’s music, it’s that he never stays in one place for very long. Trying to define his music by a singular genre is a futile task. An experimentalist that follows his creative whims, NNAMDÏ’s albums are thrilling bouts of sonic whiplash.
