One of today’s most electric, transfixing performers in any genre.Rolling Stone Magazine
“Calling Tanya Tagaq an Inuit throat singer is like calling Yo-Yo Ma a cello player. Sure, it’s accurate, but it’s not the whole of what he does. Like Ma, Tagaq is the best of what she does—innovative, inspired.”
-The National Post
A fearless innovator with a visceral stage presence and dizzyingly complex music, Tanya Tagaq is a Canadian cultural icon. With an extraordinary musical aesthetic, Tanya mines an artistic tradition dating back tens of thousands of years with a fierce power and contemporary sensibility. Featuring violinist Jesse Zubot, drummer Jean Martin and Christine Duncan and The Element Choir, this concert synthesizes tradition and innovation, wildness and introspection.
“… Tagaq rose to the occasion with a performance that was simply elemental. Her approach is essentially abstract…
Yet her singing delivered very concrete images of winter storms and summer sunshine, of birth and death and sexual ecstasy, of struggle and survival.”
-Alexander Varty, The Georgia Straight
This performance is presented in partnership with the Vancouver Opera Festival.
