“Retribution is her strongest outing yet … mirroring her freer, convulsing, lung-busting, throat-flexing live shows.” —Rolling Stone

Celebrated Inuk performer Tanya Tagaq employs exquisite, unnerving vocal improvisations that blend traditional roots with contemporary culture. Following her debut engagement at the Walker in 2015 with Nanook of the North, Tagaq returns to perform music from her critically acclaimed and politically timely new recording, Retribution. Tagaq will be accompanied by a Twin Cities–based chorus, vocal chameleon Christine Duncan, drummer Jean Martin, and violinist Jesse Zubot in a boundary-pushing exploration of tone, timbre, texture, and the outer limits of human expression.
