"Tanya an Inuit throat singer, although whole-body singer is more like it. And soul singer, in any sense you might care to think of that term." (LA Times)

Primal, erotic, experimental, Tanya Tagaq is hailed as the "Jimi Hendrix of Inuit throat singing" (David Harrington, Kronos Quartet) and "like Edith Piaf or something, totally emotional" (Bjork). Her innovative, solo style of throat singing pushes the boundaries of emotion and expresses the primitive instincts that still reside deep within our flesh. To open Music on Main's Main Series, Tanya joins forces with cellist Cris Derkson and DJ Michael Red for a concert that will leave you breathless.
