Tanya Tagaq has created a major buzz in the alternative music scene with her experimentation of traditional Inuit throat singing. As she navigates through a range of ecstatic groans, grunts and wails, you hear the sounds of birds, sea life, the wind, the cycles of life and death and the violence of the barren, frigid Arctic landscape that is home to the Inuit people yet her style has also been described as both ‘orchestral’ and ‘hip-hop-infused.’
KIHNOUA is an all-star band composed of trailblazer musicians from the Bay Area formed by the inimitable saxophonist Larry Ochs of Rova Saxophone Quartet. Joining the band as a special guests are Joan Jeanrenaud, Dohee Lee, and Scott Amendola. Ochs, who has long been fascinated by the soulful traditional Korean p’ansori singing and sinawi improvisation, has combined these two musical styles with his own Western-based, improvisational jazz style to go beyond fusion to what he describes as an accentuation of influences that awaken other textures in his work.
