Heard Tune-yards on Jamie Cullum's BBC 2 Radio show

which is broadcast here by Jazz-FM 91.1. Looked her/them up on YouTube which has video of a live performance at KEPX (I hope that's right) Seattle. She plays percussion, ukelele, uses digital looping and her voice to create incredible music. She sounds like a 50 year old African man singing in American English. Using digital looping she can create astonishing layers of sound. She now has 3 musicians with her now but previously it was all just her.

I understand she's from Texas but lives in New York now.

IF this was 1967, I'd be tempted to say "Trippy" about her music, there certainly is an almost hallucinatory feeling to it, something which reaches very deep. At the same time I find her very accessible which is strange for something so other worldly.

Try Tune-yards on YouTube.
