By Tom Breihan / April 25, 2012

If anyone tuned in early to see Barack Obama on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, they got a nice little surprise: Beirut ending The Tonight Show with a floating-above-trees rendition of “Santa Fe.” You can say many things about Jay Leno, and most of them will be true, but give the man this: He had the sense to hire a good sound engineer. Watch the performance below.

Beirut’s The Rip Tide is out now on Pompeii.
