Yes - it's true - somewhere on the list below is the track that makes Tanya Tagaq - winner of the 2014 Polaris Prize- "cluck like a chicken." Makes sense. Canadian music has never seen anyone like her.
One critic called it "chaos under constraint". Using traditional throat singing as a jumping off point, Tagaq swoops and growls an improvised - mostly wordless - performance that seems to come straight from the core of her heart.
Hear this unique performer as you've never heard her before - talking about the music she loves on My Playlist.
