Tanya Tagaq

Based In: Cambridge Bay, Nunavut

Tanya Tagaq’s debut CD Sinaa (meaning ‘edge’ in her ancestral language of Inuktitut) in 2005, was nominated for a Juno Award (Best Aboriginal Recording) and won in three categories at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, including Best Female Artist. With Auk (meaning ‘blood’ in Inuktitut) Tanya has taken her love and respect of the ancient musical tradition of throat singing and mixed it with a powerful infusion of contemporary styles. Tanya appeared on Björk’s Medúlla CD in 2004 and accompanied her on the Vespertine tour. In 2007 the world-renowned Kronos Quartet invited Tanya to participate as co-writer and performer on a project aptly titled Nunavut, which has been performed at select venues across North America, from its January 2008 debut at the Chan Centre in Vancouver, BC through to New York’s Carnegie Hall.
