Born and raised in Nunavut, Canada’s high arctic, Tagaq began experimenting with Inuit throat singing as a teenager and her first professional concert caught the attention of Bjork, leading to participation on the Icelandic artist’s 2004 CD, Medulla, and to touring. Tagaq’s two critically-acclaimed albums, Sinaa and Auk/Blood, were joined in October 11 by the live album, anuraaqtu, Inuktitut for “Wind.” In 2005, the Kronos Quartet invited her to participate in Nunavut, which was performed across North America and Europe. The ensemble reunited in 2007 for Tundra Songs. Recently venturing into film, Tagaq contributed to the soundtrack for Diaries of Knut Rasmussen and acted as musician/narrator for the award-winning National Film Board documentary, This Land.
