The Marathi music industry is fast evolving with significant leaps in talent and technical expertise. Especially over the last 5 years, we have witnessed a marked difference in the Marathi Music space, with the emergence of outstanding work.
GSEAMS and Art And Artistes presented the first Indian Music Academy Marathi Music Awards, which was held on the 26th of October 2013 in a star-studded event at Mumbai. The Indian Music Academy (IMA), a CSR initiative of Art And Artistes (I) Pvt. Ltd., is the 1st body of musicians in India. Founder Patron Sangeet Martand Padma Vibhushan Pandit Jasraj along with 12 other patrons laid down the guiding principles and key objectives of the IMA, and it was launched by the then President of India, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam in 2006. It has since then worked towards promoting all genres of Indian Music and musicians and also, relentlessly towards the welfare of the musicians.
Art And Artistes, since the last 14 years has emerged to be the only Multi Media Music Company of India, producing world class IPs including Jalsa, Tiranga, Panchtatva, Indian Music Academy Awards, Golden Voice Golden Years, Jai Hind, and many others. GSEAMS, with its expertise of conceptualizing and executing larger than life entertainment properties has come together to create this prestigious platform.
The 1st IMA Marathi Music Awards, at the prestigious Ravindra Natya Mandir, saw a glittering set of performances of Musical Maestros such as Hariharan and Vaishali Samant, scintillating Dance Performances by Amruta Khanvilkar, Anusha Dandekar and many others.
The Red Carpet & the show was grace by the who's who of the Bollywood & Marathi Entertainment Industry to name a few: Sonu Nigam, Ajay of Ajay Atul, Usha Mangeshkar, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Anuradha Paudwal, Bela Shende, Kiran Shantaram, Mahesh Kothare, Sanjay Manjarekar & many more.
The show will be telecast on Star Pravah this Sunday 24th Nov, 7pm onwards.
Commenting on the same Jayesh Patil Content Head, Star Pravah said “we at star pravaah are proud to be associated with IMA and GSEAMS has done a fantastic job at this event. We are confident that the audience is going to enjoy each and every moment of this entertaining event”.
Commenting on their association Arjun Singgh Baran & Kartik Nishandar Co-Founders GSEAMS said, “We have been extremely excited, happy & fortunate on the response the awards night has received from the Music Industry. Even though this being our first own awards co produced by GSEAMS the industry has made us feel extremely comfortable and homely by the overwhelming attendance we have got for the Awards. We look forward to the telecast of the show on Star Pravah on the 24th November,7 pm onwards and promise our viewers an enriching content which they would have never seen before.”
Further commenting Durga Jasraj co-founder Indian Music Academy and Founder & Director Art And Artistes and Neeraj Jaitly, Director Art And Artistes expressed, “Maharashtra has a rich legacy of music genres. The response to the 1st edition of the IMA Marathi Music Awards was overwhelming. IMA Awards have been accepted as the only Awards given by Musicians themselves, and therefore have a great emotional value and prestige associated in the hearts of the entire musical world. This success has been possible also due to the experience brought in by Arjun and Kartik. It’s a dream come true, to have the numero uno Marathi Channel Star Pravah, as our channel partner and supporting us. We thank all our partners and hope that we can continue to bridge the gap of producing Rich Indian Music along with main-stream mass media.”
Do tune in to Star Pravah on 24th November 7 pm onwards.
The IMA Marathi Music Awards is also fortunate to be supported by partners such as - BRIGHT Outdoor, Sakal & UFO Moviez.
