Channeling ancient rituals through her own personal ferocity, Inuk throat singer and experimental vocalist Tanya Tagaq’s wholly improvised performances transform haunting chants, screams, and growls into an ecstatic—sometimes unnerving—journey to a completely new sound world. Having exploded onto the scene through collaborations with Björk, the Kronos Quartet, and A Tribe Called Red, Tagaq’s solo shows have become must-see events for sonic thrill seekers and cultural adventurers. Retribution, her critically acclaimed follow-up to 2013’s Polaris Music Prize and Juno-winning recording Animism, was released in October 2016.
