Preview: Tanya Tagaq – Two Nights in London @ Café OTO/Corsica Studios (London, 24th & 26th January 2017)


London live music night Baba Yaga’s Hut is bringing throat singer Tanya Tagaq to the British capital for a two-nighter, at Dalston’s Café OTO on Tuesday 24th January and Elephant & Castle’s Corsica Studios on Thursday 26th January.

Tagaq, an Inuk from from Cambridge Bay (Iqaluktuutiaq), Nunavut, Canada, began practicing Inuit throat singing when she was fifteen. Over time, she has developed her own solo form of this ancestral form of singing, which is traditionally performed by two women, mixing it also with contemporary music genres such as pop and hip-hop.

In the decade since her first album release (Sinaa, published in 2005), she has won a number of prizes and sold out many of her performances. Hurry up before it happens again!

Gig Review: Tanya Tagaq @ Borderline (London, Wednesday 27th March 2019)
