NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts feature artists performing stripped-down sets behind a desk at NPR headquarters.

For the second year, NPR recently hosted a contest asking musicians to send videos of themselves playing a songs behind a desk. The winner -- named today -- heads to Washington to perform an official Tiny Desk Concert at NPR headquarters.

More than 100 artists from Colorado entered, and OpenAir compiled some of the strongest video submissions.

Host Ryan Warner spoke with OpenAir's Alisha Sweeney about some of the Colorado entries -- including music from The Milk Blossoms, Srey Davi, Patrick Dethlefs and Asalott.
