Edmonton Symphony Orchestra: Tanya Tagaq

This powerful blend of old and new traditions, Tanya Tagaq’s Qiksaaktuq (“Grief”) is a collaborative work dedicated to missing and murdered indigenous women and features the Inuit singer and composer as the soloist. This is what music does best – expressing what cannot be said any other way.
