Robert Fripp

Roomful Of Teeth

Roomful Of Teeth is a vocal ensemble from North Carolina, founded in 2009 by Brad Wells. Its stated mission is to "mine the expressive potential of the human voice".

Through study with masters from non-classical traditions the world over, the nine voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an ongoing commissioning project, invites composers to create a new repertoire without borders.
They have 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 of the styles.

Great singers, and subtle compositions!
