TANYA TAGAQ SHARES ‘UJA’

tanya2Powerfully mesmerizing Canadian inuit throat singer (a mixture of husky chanting and low growling), releases her new album ‘Animism’, in the UK on January 26th via Six Shooter Records.

The second track from the album is ‘Uja’, a slice of pure and unique radical electronic composition. Tanya is the first to admit that her music defies description and almost all of her performances are improvised, as she reveals: “It feels like I dial in another frequency.
