Tagaq, winner of the 2015 Aboriginal Recording of the Year Juno Award, creates an inimitable, distinctive experience that has won her also the award for "Pushing the Boundaries" at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

Inuit throat singing traditions are tens of thousands of years old. Tanya Tagaq has added her own spin to this often forgotten style of music. She began practicing throat singing when she was 15 years old and has since developed her own interpretation, which fuses punk, electronica and pure ecstasy to create music that is "sometimes haunting, sometimes orgiastic and always extraordinary" (The Guardian). Political, intense, and absolutely unique, Tagaq, winner of the 2015 Aboriginal Recording of the Year Juno Award, creates an inimitable, distinctive experience that has won her also the award for "Pushing the Boundaries" at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. As for Rolling Stone, it gave her its Bonnaroo "Best Scream (Avant Garde Division) award.
