The Canadian throat singer, artist, and activist performs fresh off the release of her new album, Retribution.

The 2014 release of her album Animism saw major critical success and earned her the Polaris Prize and a Juno award. Tanya Tagaq is a former Banff Centre alumna and guest faculty member for Banff Centre's Spoken Word program.

"Her ghostly chants, guttural growls, gasps and moans are enough to make Björk, her sometime collaborator, sound as demure as a choirgirl." - The Guardian
