The Mirchi Music Awards presented by Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM is back again this year. This annual awards have turned out to be the most expected event of the year for musicians and music buffs. The awards distribution ceremony will be held at the Nehru Indoor Stadium on July 23rd, 2011. The musicians, playback singers and the entire film fraternity from the four south Indian film industries will gather at the venue for the gala event.
According to a press note from the Radio Mirchi: “This year the music artistes from South India get a chance to win 15 awards across categories in each language. There will also be two special awards decided exclusively by Radio Mirchi listeners – Radio Mirchi Listener’s Choice awards given to “Best song of the year” and “Film album of the year” in each language.”
Speaking on the occasion, Chairman of the Jury – Tamil and veteran music director Mr. Gangai Amaran said, “To begin with, Mirchi Music Awards has filled a big gap that existed in the Indian music Industry. It is surprising that a country where music lies in each and every aspect of life and which is a very big part of our films, had no platform for recognition of music. I am happy that after Radio Mirchi's efforts towards pioneering this space, more such awards are coming up. I am happy to be associated with Mirchi Music Awards South 2010 for the 2nd year and am sure that the event will be even bigger and better than last year. Mirchi Music Awards binds the entire music fraternity by recognizing all those who have passion for music, be it writing, composing or singing.”
