10 Canadian Artists Up For Polaris Music Prize: The Album “josé Louis And The Paradox of Love Won The 2022 Polaris Music Prize

The 2022 Polaris Music Prize went to Pierre Kwenders for his album “José Louis and the Paradox of Love.”

An 11-person grand jury agreed that the Congolese-third Canadian’s album was the greatest Canadian album of the year, awarding it the $50,000 prize.

‘José Louis and the Paradox of Love’ fuses Kwenders’ native Montreal’s musical culture with the pulsating Afro-Latin rhythms that fuel his dance parties.

One of the most prominent music prizes in the country is the Polaris Music Prize.

This year’s nominees included a diverse array of Canadian artists, from the rap artist Shad to the rock band Destroyer from Vancouver to the New Brunswick native Lisa LeBlanc from Rosaireville.

Hip hop musician Cadence Weapon won the Polaris in 2019 with his poem “Parallel World,” a study on racism, police, and technology that was motivated in large part by the protests over George Floyd in 2020.
