Tanya Tagaq’s music isn’t like anything you’ve heard before. Unnerving and exquisite, Tagaq’s unique vocal expression may be rooted in Inuit throat singing but her music has as much to do with electronica, industrial and metal influences as it does with traditional culture. This Inuk punk is known for delivering fearsome, elemental performances that are visceral and physical, heaving and breathing and alive. With this project, Tagaq, a Polaris Music Prize and Juno Award winner, reclaims the controversial 1922 silent film Nanook of the North.Nanook of the North is considered the world's first major work of non-fiction filmmaking, yet it is rife with contradictions.
