    The nominees for the 2009 UK Asian Music Awards are out and public voting is now in progress. The awards event will be held at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in London, on Thursday 5th March 2009.

It will cover the many genres of UK Asian music including Traditional Bhangra, Urban Desi, Pop and will also recognise achievements in radio, music video, international artist and DJ categories.

    The awards have been improving every year and the team behind them are determined to make them better every year to support Asian music. Abs Shaid, founder and CEO of the UK Asian Music Awards said  “2008 is going to be remembered as an enormous year for Asian music. Many artists have enjoyed great success with huge sales both here and abroad. British Asian sounds have featured in Bollywood movies and we’ve even had signings with the USA’s top labels. These are the kind of accomplishments that we want to celebrate; from industry veterans to fresh new unsigned talent.”
