(AVIMA ). AVIMA 2009 will recognize Asia's finest Indie acts from India,Singapore, Malaysia,Thailand,Philipines,Taiwan,Japan, Hong Kong and Indonesia.

"Voize seeks to establish Asia's largest Indie community and we want to be that ONE voice to represent and honor all these amazingly talented bands and singers, said Siva Chandran, Voize Editor and founder of VIMA/AVIMA. "A little trivia nugget about the name AVIMA. AVI stands for 'my father' in Hebrew, and of course, MA means mother. So, in a way, its the mother (and father) of all Indie awards of Asia, and its going to be a huge task to coordinate and pull of the event.However its worth the effort to bring together the coolest and most hip sounds and acts of the Asian region Indie acts are no more perceived as underground unknowns that dent the lower rungs of charts, but, are now being seriously taken as the future of where music in the world is heading to.We are just glad to be the catalyst and a family member of the global indie village," quipped Siva.


Call for nominations will begin November 1st 2008 and the awards is slated to be held in Kuala Lumpur on March 21st 2009.
