This week Karkwa received the Polaris music award. For the first time, a Francophone band is being talked about and celebrated from coast to coast. A Propos has been broadcasting the music of Karkwa from day one, and this week, host Jim Corcoran presents an emotional tribute to Karkwa , including 6 translations of songs from their Polaris award winning album. It will probably be the first time new fans of Karkwa will be able to understand some of their lyrics!
Tune in to A Propos, this Sunday at 4 pm (4:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2. Also heard on Saturday October 2 at 11 pm (6 pm AT, 6:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.
