Tanya Tagaq is offering a striking visual accompaniment for the tremendous ‘Uja’. The track is taken from her groundbreaking and tantalizing third album Animism, which won the Polaris Music Prize last year and the award for Aboriginal Album of the Year at the 2015 Juno Awards.
The video was directed by Manitoba’s Procter Bros, and it “presents the same stark instabilities, frailties, dangers and violence as evoked by the song”, as the press release describes. Watch it now.
Tanya Tagaq is performing a special show in London on May 19th at Village Underground.
