PS: the Polar Music Prize is one of the most prestigious music awards in the world. It was founded in 1989 by Stikkan Anderson, Marie Ledin’s father. It awards 1 million Swedish Krone (about 95,000 euros) to each laureate. All musical styles and professions can be nominated. Over recent years, Patti Smith, The Afghanistan National Institute of Music and Pierre Boulez have been awarded the accolade. This year’s winners are Grandmaster Flash, Anne-Sophie Mutter and Playing for Change.
