Celebrating the continuous popularity of the UK Asian music scene, the awards night will honour the achievements of a variety of artist from Traditional to Urban Desi. The new venue for the show is the spectacular Royal Festival Hall in the Southbank Centre, London.
Abs Shaid, CEO and founder of the UK Asian Music Awards has teamed up with media consultant Dan Kirkby and Jon Hale, CEO of the Nashi Media Group to bring audiences and industry representatives a memorable event. Jon, who was a board Director of the Mean Fiddler Music Group plc, brings a wealth of music event experience as the Director of Business Development for the awards, “I have been following the Asian music scene for a while now and am very impressed by the variety of talent. Many have made great achievements, selling high volumes of records both here and internationally, songs featuring in Bollywood movies and even producing chart-topping tracks for some of the biggest hip-hop acts. It is this variety and these accomplishments that we want to celebrate; from industry veterans to the latest surge in fresh new unsigned talent. We have a great show lined up with fantastic performances and we aim to present an event that will not only be entertaining, but will promote and represent the current and forthcoming UK Asian music scene”.
The organisers have also developed a strategic partnership with Harbinder Singh who has been the lead sponsorship and marketing consultant on the GLA Mela. Harbinder, who runs a consultancy called Quo Varius has an established track record of high-level sponsorship with major commercial brands and public sector organisation. Harbinder will play a key role in the plan to revitalise the awards.
