Check out META Fellow Nicolas Perez’s “La Mesa” project:
“La Mesa” is a video series that is inspired by NPR’s Tiny Desk series. The goal of this video series is to provide a recording and performance space for rising artist to share their music. There is a brown table (la mesa) in the video that all performer sign at the end of their performance. This table serves as a symbol of community amongst all of the performers who use this space.
The first episode features youth from Hyde Square Task Force’s music program performing an arrangement of a song they learned during band rehearsals.
