Gig Alert: Tanya Tagaq at Jazz At Lincoln Center’s Appel Room
Tickets: $30-$55, Show at 8:30PM
The Inuk singer and songwriter Tanya Tagaq takes the traditional throat singing of the Arctic and drags it into the 21st century. Her record Animism won Canada’s top music prize, beating far bigger names like Drake and Arcade Fire. But it’s in live performance that Tanya Tagaq really shines. On stage, she is a force of nature – which is appropriate, as much of her work sounds the alarm about what humans are doing to the natural world.
She is playing at Jazz At Lincoln Center’s Appel Room tomorrow night as part of their American Songbook series. You can also hear Tanya performing this afternoon live in our Soundcheck studio.
