JazzEast is excited to co-present Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq with In The Dead of Winter. Tanya Tagaq: Nanook of the North takes place on Friday, January 24, at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. 

Originally from Nunavut, Tagaq has made her mark on the Canadian music scene, as well as internationally, pairing with talent such as Bjork. Tagaq also studied visual art at the NSCAD University. The concert Tanya Tagaq: Nanook of the North is based on the original sound track for the 1922 black and white film Nanook of the North. Tagaq’s haunting throat singing and improvisation bring new light to this infamous film.

Opening the night will be local jazz aficionado Sageev Oore. Known for combining music and silent film, Sageev will bring his own flavor of improvisation to the stage. 

This concert is open to all ages. Doors open at 7:30 PM, show starts at 8 PM.Tickets are available now at The Rebecca Cohn box office or online at www.dal.ca.
