Bio:

Fusing of old-world sounds and new-world flair, Greyson Gritt and Tiffany Ayalik are embracing their blended backgrounds. Combining their talents of throat singing, haunting melodies and traditional legends, the JUNO award winning pair are excited to present a mix of flavours from across Northern Canada.

As Ayalik charismatically embodies her stories, Gritt infuses it with a soulful blues to create an experience that consumes the senses. Quantum Tangle combines the wide-ranging artistic visions of Greyson Gritt and Tiffany Ayalik who draw from their respective Anishinaabe-Métis and Inuit backgrounds to create a fusion of old-world sounds and new-world flair.

Proudly and boldly displaying their roots, the pair tailors their music to examine systemic racism and colonialism, while offering ways to empower marginalized groups.

Quantum Tangle is at the vanguard of indigenous musicians transforming Canadian culture, as they look back through history to challenge, educate and encourage audiences.

Kutupitush! (Thank You!) for listening!
