Tanya Tagaq to Perform at the 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz and Blues Festival

April 27, 2010

WJB is proud to announce Tanya Tagaq as a performer at the 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz and Blues Festival in St. John’s Newfoundland. Tagaq has a unique and distinctive style that fuse  traditional Inuit throat singing with modern popular musical styles.

Read what others have written about Tanya Tagaq:

“Like Bjork, Tagaq makes music that is both decidedly unusual and universally appealing on a most primal level. Her innovative, solo style of throat singing seeks to push the boundaries of emotion and to express the primitive instincts she believes still reside deep within our flesh. She describes her evolution over the past six years as a process of going deeper and deeper into her performance to the point where she virtually “leaves her body” and lets the expression take over.”

“‘Indescribable’ is not an appropriate word to begin an artist’s bio, nor is it suitable as a description of a musician. The problem is this: when Tanya Tagaqs’ music fills your ears, she is genuinely one of those rare artists whose sounds and styles are truly groundbreaking. ‘Inuit throat singer’ is one part of her sonic quotient. So are descriptions like ‘orchestral’ ‘hip-hop-infused’ and ‘primal’…but these words are not usually used collectively. In the case of Tagaq, however – they are.”
