Artist takes on issues by the throat
In Canada’s current music landscape, there are few, if any, artists who challenge quite like Tanya Tagaq.
She challenges through her dizzying and intense arrangements that combine traditional Inuit throat singing with innovative, almost punk-rock inspired ideas to create art that needs to be heard and not just listened to. Her music isn’t always pretty, and it doesn’t always feel good to listen to, which is why some are unwilling to put in the effort necessary to reap the benefits.
But despite the auditory harshness, there are important dialogues being started.
In fact, Tagaq was appointed to the Order of Canada three months ago for "contributions to Canadian culture through her avant-garde Inuit throat singing."
