TANYA TAGAQ’S MIND-BLOWING MANIFESTO, RETRIBUTION, IS ON THIS YEAR’S POLARIS PRIZE SHORT LIST.

      

“Last fall, Tanya Tagaq’s voice rose defiantly, singularly, to unleash and demand Retribution, an album and a damnation aimed at rape — of women, of land, of Indigenous rights. Arguably the fiercest album to come out of 2016, it was passed over for a Juno nomination earlier this year (a more jarring omission after Tagaq’s incredible opening performance on the 2017 Junos broadcast alongside A Tribe Called Red). A second Polaris short-list nomination might make up for that.” – CBC Music
