Talking Split Tooth and Tanya Tagaq
Tanya Tagaq is everywhere. As well she should be.
Tanya Tagaq is everywhere. As well she should be. She’s an entrancing performer and, with the publication of her first book, Split Tooth, she’s also proven to be a compelling writer. In fact, the book was long-listed for the 2018 Giller Prize.
In the first issue of Femke, writer Amber Nasrulla offers up a fascinating meditation on her voice, while she travelled to Ottawa and interviewed Tanya and her band while they performed at Ottawa Bluesfest. Give it a read.
And, for a multi-sensory treat, check out Tanya’s video for Snowblind, a song from her Toothsayer EP, recently released by Six Shooter Records.
