Karkwa wins the 2010 Polaris Music Prize( Les Chemins de Verre -the best Canadian album of the year)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2010 by dk

Karkwa was named the winner of the fifth annual Polaris Music Prize.  This award, given to signify the best Canadian album of the year, was presented tonight  at the gala ceremony held at CTV’s Concert Hall at the Masonic Temple in Toronto. In addition  to bragging rights, Karkwa take home $20,000 for their album Les Chemins de Verre.
“It’s an unbelievable thing to win this prize.  We have a lot of respect for this contest and we think they do it for the right reason (music).  On suit le gala depuis son début, et c’est le prix qui nous touche le plus.” – Karkwa
Karkwa joins the group of previous winners which includes Fucked Up (2009), Caribou (2008), Patrick Watson (2007) and Final Fantasy (2006).  Their win is the first for a French language album.
The process of voting begins with the almost 200 member jury. These music journalists, bloggers, and broadcasters cast ballots for the 40 title Long List and 10 title Short List of Canadian albums released between June 1, 2009 and May 31, 2010.  The 11 member gala Grand Jury, chosen from the larger jury, was sequestered in the Masonic Temple jury room to select a winner while the event took place.
Liisa Ladouceur, who oversees the Grand Jury, spoke about this year’s decision. 

“This was probably the longest and most emotional deliberation in Polaris history.  The short listed records are all of extreme high quality and they truly resonated with members of the jury whether or not they completely understood the language of the lyrics,” reflected Liisa Ladouceur.   “What this year’s winner indicates is that music is about emotion.”

The Grand Jury this year are Rob Bowman (York University professor), Jennifer Charlesworth (The Georgia Straight), Leah Collins (, Del Cowie (Exclaim), Jonathan Dekel (Spinner), Amanda Farrell-Low (Monday Magazine), Jian Ghomeshi (CBC Q), Marc Xavier Leblanc (freelance journalist and DJ), Francois Marchand (Vancouver Sun), Andre Peloquin (Bang Bang) and Phillipe Rezzonico (Rue Frontenac).
Ten albums were shortlisted for the 2010 Polaris Prize. They are:
The Besnard Lakes – The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night
Broken Social Scene – Forgiveness Rock Record
Caribou – Swim
Karkwa – Les Chemins De Verre
Dan Mangan – Nice, Nice, Very Nice
Owen Pallett – Heartland
Radio Radio – Belmundo Regal
The Sadies – Darker Circles
Shad – TSOL
Tegan And Sara – Sainthood
The gala was hosted by CBC Radio 3’s Grant Lawrence and MuchMusic’s Sarah Taylor. Sirius Satellite Radio and Radio 3 broadcast the event live across North America on Sirius channel 86, and around the world on the web at The gala was also webcast live on and will be broadcast Saturday September 25, 9pm ET on MuchMusic with repeat airings on MUCHMORE Thursday, September 30th @ 10pm, MTV2, Friday Oct 1st @11pm ET and Saturday, October 2nd, @ 10am ET, and BRAVO, Monday, September 27th @ 10PM & 1AM and Tuesday,  September 28th @ 9AM ET .

Mandela’s Great-Granddaughter Killed in Crash After World Cup Concert

Posted in News with tags , , , , on June 11, 2010 by dk

Nelson Mandela’s 13-year-old great-granddaughter was killed in a car crash on the way home from a concert on the eve of the World Cup, his office said Friday.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation said Zenani Mandela died in a one-car accident after attending the World Cup kickoff concert at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto, near Johannesburg.

Johannesburg Metro police spokeswoman Edna Mamonyane said the driver had been charged with drink-driving. Mamonyane said the driver, who police would not name, could also face culpable homicide charges.

“The Metro police found that he was drunk,” Mamonyane said. “He lost control of the vehicle and it collided with a barricade.”

The foundation denied reports the former president’s ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was in the car.
