Brianna Tam’s Electric Cello Carries A Dark Undercurrent

John Hooper/ Decoro Images

Brianna Tam’s cello nearly disappears when turned sideways. The sleek, black instrument is just an outline with strings. No wooden body is needed for resonance, as the notes feed directly into a loop pedal. Patiently and with great precision, she taps a button with her foot to build and weave layers of her own playing together. Brianna Tam is a string quartet unto herself, evoking shadowy symphonic universes. The young Greensboro-based artist plays with hip-hop artists and singer-songwriters, but joins host Frank Stasio live at the Triad Stage as a solo act.

Tam's band, Camus and Crew will perform at Bull's Tavern in Winston-Salem on Friday, March 13 at 9 p.m.

Grant Holub-Moorman coordinates events and North Carolina outreach for WUNC, including a monthly trivia night. He is a founding member of Embodied and a former producer for The State of Things.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
