Tanya Tagaq is a world renowned Inuk experimental vocalist and artist. Refusing to limit herself, Tanya blends experimental pop, punk, metal, electronic any whatever strikes her fancy while remaining rooted in traditional throat singing both a solo artist and eclectic collaborator. She's also a writer, publishing Split Tooth in 2018 - a highly acclaimed book that is part fiction, part memoir. There's no easy way to describe Tanya, all one can really do is experience what she has to give.
