|Now, featuring the TOTALLY ASTOUNDING Kronos Quartet / Tanya Tagaq / Derek Charke recording "Tundra Songs". We'll play a good chunk of it. And likely the rest on future shows. Definitely not your Elders throat singing, or chamber music!
First, an Inuit / Greenlandic creation story.
Then, the title Tundra Songs piece itself. Tundra Songs is essentially a suite in 5 movements: I Ice, II Water, III Sedna's Song, IV Lament of the Dogs, V The Trickster Tulugaq.
Tanya Tagaq will be at Ottawa Jazz Fest on June 30. If you have not seen her live before, do not miss it! And, try to get close enough to hear her voice over the mic/speakers and all that. Just WOW!
