Polaris Music Prize Gala

The Polaris Music Prize Gala was held on Monday September 18, 2017 at the Carlu in Toronto. Nominees Lisa LeBlanc Lido, Pimienta, Tanya Tagaq, Leif Vollebekk Weaves wowed the crowd during the awards.

Kaytranada, last year’s winner, presented this year’s Polaris Music Prize winner to Lido Pimienta for her album, La Papessa?  Lido Pimienta is a Colombian born Canadian musician who now lives in Toronto.  She captured the crowd with her sound which includes traditional indigenous, Afro-Colombian musical styles, contemporary and electronic music.

The Polaris Prize is one of Canada’s most prestigious music prizes — it has been given to Arcade Fire and Caribou in the past.  A knowledgeable 11-member grand jury selected Lido from a short list of 10.

About The Polaris Music Prize:

This music award is given based on merit not based on sales.  An eleven person jury of music journalists and broadcasters was chosen from the larger, nationwide pool of nearly 200 Polaris jurors.  This year also marked the second year of the Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize, which celebrates albums released before the Polaris got its start a decade ago, with shortlists selected by a jury and winners voted on by the public.
