The GRAMMY award winning vocal performance group, Roomful of Teeth, isn’t your typical music group by any means.
Through a mix of sounds from many different cultures, such as Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, belting, Inuit throat singing, Korean P’ansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music and Persian classical singing, the group has created a unique sound experience.
The group’s nine members, including Williamsport, PA native Dashon Burton, will perform at the Weis Center on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. If you’re interested in learning more about Roomful of Teeth’s unique style, make sure to arrive early for a free pre-performance talk in the Weis Center Atrium Lobby at 6:45 p.m with Dashon Burton and Pulizer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw.
Bucknell students will also be a part of Tuesday’s performance, as the University choir and the Camerata will perform alongside Roomful of Teeth during the program.
