For Tanya Tagaq, the stage is a sanctuary.
When the Inuk throat singer performs, she escapes her self-professed neuroses – the fears, anxieties and little voices that make her question herself daily: Am I a good mother? Am I a good human being? Am I good? Performing gives her the same sense of calm she feels when she’s back in Nunavut, some 3,200 kilometres away from her newly adopted home in Toronto.
