    dogseat: it does, you can hear a few songs here.

    the album is well worth ordering

    bhlubarber: was this during the evening show? did you have a press pass? I'm envious of this shot, good job.

  • Eric Harvey Brown PRO 9y

    i need to see her live, i can't imagine how a person can make all those crazy sounds!
  • miss jenny magenta 9y

    You should send that to her. She would love it. You can get her contact info on the media section of the folkfest website.

    Thanks for your comments! Tagaq's album 'Sinaa' is amazing - do buy it - and her evening show was intense. At the after-party Tanya jammed with Ganga Giri on dij and it was an incredible harmony of the two 'voices'. She followed that up with a "spirited" set with NZ's Mihirangi and our own Allison Russell. Anyone there knows what I mean!
    @ roskylde: I volunteer on the festival photo committee so I get some sweet access indeed.

    She's an incedible performer, superbly high-energy and high-intensity in everything she performs... Her solo stuff has come along incredibly since her last appearance at the 'Fest,

    And Bhlubarber, you're totally right - the afterparty show was possibly the crowning moment of the fest. The Duet was beyond belief. Those there know exactly why I capitalise that.

    Great composition and pose... it almost looks like it was done in the studio... with the grey background...
