Tanya Tagaq

Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq pants, grunts, howls and growls wordless expressions of intense emotion, from whispers to screams. It's a sound that combines heavy metal intensity, improv jazz risk, and the weight of Indigenous history. The critical success of her 2014 Animism album catapulted SOCAN member Tagaq into the mainstream, as it won not only a JUNO Award for Aboriginal Recording of the Year, but also the annual Polaris Music Prize as the best album in Canada. In 2016, Tagaq was even inducted into the Order of Canada. As her vision grows more expansive, 2016's Retribution has cemented her reputation as a pure, innovative and activist artist.
