With the new wave of Spanish artists comes Lau Noah, a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Reus, Spain, who is enchanting music lovers one song at a time.

Lau is the latest act to give a Tiny Desk Concert, flaunting her poetic lyrics and magical flamenco guitar riffs in a nearly 16-minute set that included five songs, wrapping with “La Realidad.”

According to NPR, she speaks and sings in Catalan, Spanish, English and sometimes Hebrew. She played the piano growing up and left Spain for New York City five years ago while still a teen.

“There’s a language we speak in the Northeast of Spain called Catalan in a region called Catalonia, this is where I come from,” she said during her performance before delivering her song “L’Adéu (The Goodbye).” “And for many years I only sang in English because I was too scared of what they would say if I sang in my mother language. I’m not anymore. I’m really happy to share a song in Catalan with you."
