Events Concert - Roomful of Teeth
Roomful of Teeth is a GRAMMY-winning vocal project dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. Through study with masters from singing traditions the world over, the eight-voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an ongoing commissioning process, forges a new repertoire without borders. Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, the band gathers annually at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, Massachusetts, where they’ve studied Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, belting, Inuit throat singing, Korean P’ansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music and Persian classical singing with some of the world’s top performers and teachers. The project’s self-titled debut album was released in October 2012 on New Amsterdam Records. Called “sensually stunning” by the New York Times, the album was included on many Best of 2012 lists, topped the classical charts on iTunes and Amazon, broke into the top 10 on the Billboard charts and took home a GRAMMY Award in 2014 for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.
