(The Globe and Mail) Primal scream: Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq is like no one you've ever heard

Posted May 30, 2014 in

"Microphone in hand, her blanket dress bunching around her waist, Tanya Tagaq crouches down as if to pull some deeper, more elemental sound from the earth hidden below the floor. She is singing, growling and panting her way through a set loosely related to her new album, Animism. She calls herself a sound sculptor, but what I experience when I hear Tagaq perform is always more like a weather system, swirling unpredictably through her body, the room and myself. You can’t stay at a distance when she’s singing: You either let the elements do what they will, or head for shelter elsewhere."
