Album Review: Toothsayer by Tanya Tagaq


AlbumToothsayer
Artist: Tanya Tagaq
Release Date: March 2019
Thoughts: The throat singer Tanya Tagaq combines Inuit traditions with modern electronic, ambient, and industrial music. This 5-song EP was made to  accompany the British National Maritime Museum’s “Polar Worlds” exhibit.  Without words, Tagaq’s compositions paint vivid images of the extreme wildness of the Arctic, while expressing the danger of climate change and the asserting indigenous rights. Tagaq’s voice is a powerful and expressive instrument.
