Welcome to the second part of the numerous interviews we conducted backstage at the 2023 ADISQ Gala and Premier Gala.


Pierre Kwenders’ album José Louis and the Paradox of Love won the prestigious Polaris Music Prize in 2022. This obviously paved the way for his victory at the Premier Gala de l’ADISQ in the Album of the Year – World Music category. But for Kwenders, this double achievement acts more as a creative stimulus than a reason to believe that he can now rest. Here’s our on-the-spot interview at the Premier Gala.
