Because of illness Tanay Tagaq had to cancel her visit to Hamburg. The performance will take place with Athi-Patra Ruga and Angel-Ho live on stage and the music of Tanya Tagaq.

QUEENS IN EXILE is a journey that utilises throat singing from two polarities: that of the Xhosa (Thembu) Umnqokolo and the award-winning Canadian (Inuk) musician Tanya Tagaq. Together with musician and performer Angel-Ho, Athi-Patra Ruga and Tanya Tagaq will celebrate a ritual of dystopian energy and abysmal power. Their songs of displacement and unrequited love set the tone for the new struggles for a generation in exile.
