Big congratulations to Tanya Tagaq who took home the Polaris Music 2014 prize last night for her album ‘Animism’. Tanya gave an amazing performance which also won her the only standing ovation of the evening, she dedicated her performance to Canada’s missing and murdered Aboriginal Women.

Tanya Tagaq is no stranger to awards, winning Best Female artist in 2005’s Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards. Something to listen out for on the album is Michael Red‘s wild northern field recordings which feature as Tanya’s ‘backing band’.

The creator behind Tanya’s colourful poster Shannon Reid is an illustrator living here in Toronto. Congrats to you too Shannon!

We are very happy to have had the great pleasure of screen-printing the posters again for the prize, they are now available to buy here at Kid Icarus.
$35.00, 18″ x 24″ 3 colours on white coverstock.
