Congrats to the Montreal band Karkwa for winning the Polaris Music Prize on Monday night!  It was a star-studded and amazing night for Canadian music and it was a fantastic moment to watch the band’s shocked faces as they were announced at the winners of the $20,000.

They were up against some pretty big names, so I bet Karkwa weren’t the ones that were surprised!

Haven’t heard of Karkwa before?  That’s totally fine.  That’s why the Polaris Music Prize exists,  so YOU can discover great Canadian music.

Click here to listen to them on Myspace.

Better yet, click here to download their album on Itunes.

It is only $9.99.  You know you’ve bought crap on Itunes before so why not support local, home-grown talent?

Congrats Karkwa!!!

If you missed the live stream, you can catch it on MuchMusic this Saturday!
