Two master throat singers highlight the similarities between their culturally distinct singing traditions. Radik Tyulyush, who hails from Tuva on the border of Mongolia, opens the program. Inuit throat singer and Polaris prizewinner Tanya Tagaq concludes with live accompaniment for a screening of the historically important — but highly controversial — silent film Nanook of the North (1922), directed by Robert Flaherty. Be prepared for spellbinding performances and the rare opportunity to experience two indigenous contemporary throat singers in a single venue!
