“Tanya Tagaq puts on the best show I’ve ever seen.” So raved one NY music critic after a recent show, and so rave many others, whenever and wherever Tagaq takes the stage. This Inuk punk is known for delivering performances that are visceral and physical, heaving and breathing and alive. Fearsome, strident and elemental, Tanya Tagaq’s music is a genre unto itself. Tagaq’s unique vocal style may be rooted in traditional cultural form, but her expression also aligns with avant-garde improvisation, metal and electronica influences, which inform her startling and powerful creative vision. Tanya Tagaq’s 2014 Polaris Prize winning album Animism, released on Six Shooter Records, has made waves for its originality, artistic importance and stunning uniqueness.
