Tanya Tagaq

2/8/2019 | Meany Center for the Performing Arts

Music University District

Celebrated Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq employs exquisite, unnerving vocal improvisations that bridge traditional roots with contemporary culture. Her music is like nothing you’ve heard before: a contortion of punk, metal and electronica into a complex and contemporary sound. A tour-de-force vocalist, she is the winner of a Polaris Music Prize and has been named to the Order of Canada, one of the country’s highest honors. Prepare to experience a boundary-pushing exploration of tone, timbre, texture, and the powerful outer limits of human expression. Tagaq will be joined by a local choir (to be announced) to create an improvisational soundscape for the performance.
