Performance: Tanya Snow's Inuit Throat Singing in Katajjaq Style

Experience the profound art of Inuit throat singing, or katajjaq (ᑲᑕᔾᔭᖅ), with Tanya Snow, an Inuk from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, now based in Yellowknife, NT. Immersed in the craft since her teens, Tanya uniquely blends traditional Inuit melodies with contemporary rhythm. While throat-singing traditionally involves two people, often in playful contests, Tanya's solo performance emerges from displacement due to wildfires. Let her transport you through Canada's Arctic heritage, preserving an ancient tradition while infusing it with fresh vitality.
