Winners in the 2009 Asia Voice Independent Music Awards have been announced in a web-based ceremony, originating in Malaysia. The awards celebrate the very best in independent music from all over Asia and plans are afoot to extend the reach of next year’s awards to include all of Australasia. Collaborative outfit Project E.A.R, with members from Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines, impressed the judges – taking out both Rock Song Of The Year and the prestigious Song Of The Year gong for the track ‘Marabahaya’. Other winners on the night included acts from all over Asia – from Singapore to Japan, Malaysia to Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia and even the United Arab Emirates. A full list of all the winners for the 2009 event is available on the VOIZE MUSIC WEBSITE. auspOp congratulates all involved on the awards, from the nominees and winners to the organisers of the event, who (like us) are passionate about supporting independent music.
