About Roomful of Teeth
A leading incubator for cutting-edge a cappella music, Roomful of Teeth has studied both experimental and world traditions, including Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, Korean p’ansori, and Sardinian cantu a tenore. The ensemble’s first record won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance in 2013. That same year, one of the group’s singers, alto Caroline Shaw, won the Pulitzer Prize for music for Partita for 8 Voices—a work that put Roomful of Teeth on the map and catapulted Shaw to international prominence. In the years since, the ensemble has performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and Disney Concert Hall alongside the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
