Audio: Tune-Yards A Cappella

Ecstatic Music Festival continued at Merkin Concert Hall, Kaufman Center, this past Saturday with a cappella group, Roomful of Teeth. They performed pieces by William Brittelle, Caleb Burhans, and —  our favorite — Merrill Garbus a.k.a Tune-Yards. Merrill joined them on stage for “Hatari” — which she’d promised to perform in NYC only after finishing her sophomore album — and “Doorstep”, a new track off that sophomore album, coming out April 19.

Here are the four Tune-Yards performances recorded from that event, in the order they were played in:
