Founded in 2001 in Berlin, Germany, Polkaholix reinvents Polka with their gritty vocals and sound, modern along with the traditional instruments, and a sense of humor.
After 300 concerts in 5 years, the POLKAHOLIX are red-hot (but not literally). Their new CD "The
Great Polka Swindle" was recorded in the notorious Hansa Studios in Berlin, home to such famous
polka-enthusiasts as David Bowie and Iggy Pop. Inspired by the polkatastic
results, 54 DJs in 16 countries voted this, their second CD, into the
the World Music Chart Europe top 20 (divided by 4.3). This global
formula has also been adopted in their homeland - the band is now RUTHnominated
for 2008 (RUTH is the German world music prize, and is not
averse to a quick polka herself). Just as well as the music critics, which
have marked the new POLKAHOLIX CD with the PREIS DER
DEUTSCHEN SCHALLPLATTENKRITIK (German record critics' award). POLKAHOLIX are on a
mission of polka. Is the Mission Accomplished? We believe so.
