GIMA Awards 2012 :: Press Conference

The 3rd season of the GiMA Awards officially kickstarted with a press conference highlighting the significant facets of the ceremony.

After an emphatic debut in 2010, the Global Indian Music Academy (GiMA) Awards has emerged as the most definitive platform to honour and applaud talent in Indian music. In a first-of-its kind initiative by Wizcraft International Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., in partnership with the leaders of the Indian music industry, GiMA celebrates talent across over multiple genres of Indian music, with the vision of giving different musical genres the same importance and recognition. Over the last 2 years, only the music industry’s finest have taken home the coveted GiMA. And they have held it high. Now in its 3rd edition, GiMA continues to applaud those who have pushed the boundaries in Indian music; those who have created music like never before.


The aim of the event was to provide a platform to the musicians to vote for their favorites from the given nominee list. Sabbas Joseph, founder director of Wizcraft, informed the audience that the designated machines would be available throughout the day for voting and provided a brief introduction to the world of GiMA.

Representing the advisory board, Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma applauded GIMA on their initiative to rightfully award musicians. Commenting on this, he said, ”I haven’t seen any other country in the world where music is an integral part of life. In India, music plays an essential role in every milestone of a person’s life – be it the birth of a child, marriage ceremonies or even during the final rites of a person. It is our responsibility to cherish and uphold our Indian music and not neglect our culture. We need to pave a correct path for the next generation to nurture and appreciate folk music.” And by saying this, he cast the inaugural vote.
