Tanya Tagaq – Retribution

“I’m devastated that this is how we live.” Those are chillingly direct words from Tanya Tagaq, Polaris-winning throat singer. That tragic sentiment comes from an interview with The Globe and Mail, in reference to her cover of Nirvana’s “Rape Me” on new album Retribution, a song she chose as a response to the prevalence of misogyny, abuse, and assault against indigenous women. Tagaq’s music is in fact fueled by a seemingly inexhaustible list of injustices, her traditional-indebted songs addressing ultra-contemporary issues. This blending of past and present, delivered in the rawest way, makes her promise of Retribution that much more powerful.
