Roomful of Teeth is a Grammy-award winning vocal project founded by Brad Wells and dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. Drawing from their studies with masters of non-classical traditions from around the world, the eight-person ensemble is continually growing its vocabulary of singing techniques, which include Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, belting, Inuit throat singing, Korean P’ansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music and Persian classical singing.
In River To River, Roomful of Teeth will perform a rare New York City concert in which they will perform selection of songs from their new album Render for the first time, perform composer Wally Gunn’s The Ascendant and present Caroline Shaw’s music, film and theater video installation Ritornello.
Roomful of Teeth’s mesmerizing songs are guaranteed to capture your attention and show you the infinite possibilities of what the human voice can do through singing styles from around the world.
