This month we share an NPR Tiny Desk Home Concert sure to float your boat, and don't miss this beautiful west London church available for hire through Tutti.
Plus, travel back to simpler times in this month's Decidedly Different because we've uncovered the internet's time capsule.
All the best,
Gabriel and the Team @ Tutti

Lightship 95 is a recording studio with a difference: It's a floating lighthouse moored on the River Thames. And it's also where English jazz musician Nubya Garcia recorded her album SOURCE.
The NPR Music Youtube channel has over 7 million subscribers and is famous for its Tiny Desk Concerts. During 2020 the channel took a working-from-home approach, and so Nubya decided the Lightship 95 recording studio would make the perfect space to perform. If you look closely you'll notice the hanging plants don't stop rocking for the duration of the concert.
Check out Nubya Garcia’s full performance here, and view Lightship 95 on Tutti.
