A good listen...

This album is pretty interesting as a stand alone piece. If you do not like Bjork, you will not like this album, that I am pretty sure of. If you would like something a little more close to the sterotyped verison of music, check out Bjork's Medulla, where Tanya's vocals are all over; however, many hardly view Bjork's latest album as music. If you can learn to appreciate that album, you will more than love this one. Also, the duet of Tanya's and Bjork on this album, is not her "best" work from the Medulla album, so I say, get this album as well as Medulla if you are into more broader strokes of the definition of music. Tanya is a throat singer and produces some of the loftiest beats I have heard and would probably classify it as chamber music. If you have no clue what chamber music is do not even sample a song from this album. Two-Big-Toes-Up

you'll love it.

This woman's talent stands on its own - it's purely amazing. One may think it's noise, odd, or what not, but with an open mind, it's truly a beautiful work of art that was cleverly put together. Throat music is what it's called [look it up if you don't know] - and Tanya Tagaq performs it well and outstandingly. If you're into vocals [and i mean vocals], you can't go wrong with this. It's excellent.


This music is crazy. The guy at my local library knows Tanya Tagaq, and he's the guy who pointed me in her direction. This music is so cool. Tanya Tagaq is Eskimo, and this is called throat singing (it's done in many cultures). Since it's normally 50 degrees below zero, this is the only way they can sing. Usually throat singing is done with two Eskimo women standing face to face, and they play off each other for as long as they can until they laugh or quit due to exhaustion. Go watch some videos online, it's very cool.

b. 1977, Ikaluktuutiak (Cambridge Bay), Nunavut, Victoria Island, Canada. Raised in an Inuit community, Gillis studied at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. While there, she took an interest in traditional Inuit throat singing, a multiphonic and percussive form that is customarily performed by two people. Gillis was obliged to teach herself a solo variation and later taught others, thus generating partners with whom she was able to sing in duo. In 2000, Gillis was at the Great Northern...
