About Tanya Tagaq:



Celebrated Inuk performer Tanya Tagaq employs exquisite, unnerving vocal improvisations that bridge traditional roots with contemporary culture. The Inuit are a group of culturally similar indigenous peoples inhabiting several Arctic regions. Tanya’s heritage is never far from her mind, but instead of making her music nostalgic or folky, it has a political edge - growing up in a majority Inuit area, Tanya saw the effects of Canadian attempts to systematically dismantle Inuit culture. She learned the traditional practice of throat singing, amplifying it well beyond the indigenous communities from where it originated. Although she learned this in part as an act of love, because it has roots in her spiritual and ancestral heritage, she also did so as an act of resistance, reclaiming part of a culture that the government sought to eradicate.
"She taps into humanity's most naked emotions and forces them into the spotlight... the best musical performance any of us had ever seen." – Vice Music
This concert is part of World Music Institute’s Counterpoint Series.

otherworldly foray into the limits of the breath and voice! Inuk throat singing transformed into a new solo medium touching on ethereal, metal, punk, protest.
