Tiny Desk Live performance : NPR

Hania Rani makes stunning music that is haunted, but enchanted. The Polish pianist and composer blurs the traces of ambient, classical and home — submerged beats pulse below ripples of piano, synths and her delicate voice. She repeatedly performs in live performance halls throughout Europe, however throughout an American tour she introduced the cinematic, but intimate songs of her album Ghosts to the Tiny Desk.

Rani is conservatory educated, however like so many post-classical artists working proper now, brings her personal influences to centuries-old custom. The way in which her fingers chromatically surge in a cascade of shade recommend the later compositions of Mozart — one way or the other lush and elegant of their pressure, getting ready to one thing totally different. However there’s additionally a restlessness in how Rani, accompanied by Ziemowit Klimek on upright bass and synth, bounces between the piano and synths with ease and sometimes inside the similar music. She is a marvel to observe.
