Tanya Tagaq's Improvised Performance and Interview

Throat singing is something I decided to try to teach myself today, and stumbled across the above video. It's a style I've been somewhat interested in for some time — Hanggai Perform Four Seasons, Batubagan, Borulai's Lullaby, Tyva Kyzy Perform "Aylanmaa Damyran," "Chandagajty" and "Setkilimden Sergek Yr-dyr" and Baby Gramps and the Akron Family Perform "Cape Cod Girls".

Up in Toronto just a few days ago for a conference, I shared an elevator with some similarly striking ladies, who were talking about a familial baptism, a reminder of just how close the Great White North is.
