Since the 2005 release of her debut CD, Tanya Tagaq, a native of Nunavut, has attracted the attention of some of the world’s most innovative musical artists while bringing her unique mix of traditional Inuit throat singing and contemporary styles to an ever growing audience. She has recorded with musicians as diverse as Björk and the Kronos Quartet, whose member David Harrington called her the “Jimi Hendrix of Inuit throat singers.” Find out why in this concert featuring songs from her new album, Auk.
