This week, Niger-based band Tal National was our featured One for the Road pick with their single “Claire.” They mix guitar rhythms and sharp, percussive beats with their West African sound.

The band has performed together for more than a decade, and they received acclaim from outlets like The Guardian, The New York Times and NPR for their 2013 record “Kaani,” their first release outside of Niger.

Recently, Tal National played at Ace Hotel New York as part of the hotel’s 5 at 5 series, which features artists like Father John Misty and Surfer Blood performing 5 songs at 5 p.m. The series showcases intimate performances. We’re excited to be sharing an exclusive video of them here.
