tUnE-yArDs On World Cafe

Nov 23, 2011

Merrill Garbus, the woman behind tUnE-yArDs, began as a solo act, and her talent practically explodes out of every performance. She commands any space, especially from behind a set-up of a tom and snare drum, a ukulele, and her bare feet atop the loop pedals from which she builds her compositions. Every sound that Garbus weaves into her songs is so deliberately placed that "experimental" seems too nonchalant a word.

Today's show features live performances from some of our favorite World Cafe artists, straight from our 20th-anniversary celebration concerts.
