Buffy Sainte-Marie's Polaris Prize win sign of thriving indigenous music scene


When Buffy Sainte-Marie's name was announced as the winner of the 2015 Polaris Prize for her album Power in the Blood on Monday night, it opened another door for indigenous musicians to walk through.

"For two years in a row this accolade has been awarded to two outstanding female indigenous artists, who persevered and captured the attention of the nation's music industry, proving that music has no boundaries," says Jacquie Black, manager of the Indigenous Music Awards.

Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq won last year.
