TANYA TAGAQ IN CONCERT WITH NANOOK OF THE NORTH

Friday, May 5, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Oakville Centre, Willson Auditorium

Tanya Tagaq, Polaris Music Prize winner and three-time Juno award nominee, reclaims the controversial 1922 silent film Nanook of the North - considered the world’s first major work of non-fiction filmmaking. The film portrays the lives of an Inuk family in Arctic Canada.

Tagaq performs a live accompaniment to the film’s silent images. Her unique vocal expression may be rooted in Inuit throat singing but her music has as much to do with electronica, industrial and metal influences as it does with traditional culture.
