Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq's signature style emerges from the intersection of improvisation, tradition, passion and invention. Her mesmerizing work is abstract, evoking images from nature, and her power and skill have led to collaborations with pop icon Björk and the cutting-edge Kronos Quartet. Tanya Tagaq brings her trio to Amherst for an evening of extraordinary and innovative music.

"Calling Tanya Tagaq an Inuit throat singer is like calling Yo-Yo Ma a cello player. Sure, it's accurate, but it's not the whole of what he does. Like Ma, Tagaq is the best of what she does -- innovative, inspired."
--National Post (Canada)
