IRAA 2016 Recognising Excellence in Recording & Mixing

MUMBAI: The 10th IRAA Awards will be held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre on Saturday 28th May. The event will recognize excellence in music production, recording & mixing over the preceding year. Almost 200 industry professionals will attend this year’s IRAA Awards, to applaud their peers from the fraternity.

The Indian Recording Arts Academy (IRAA) awards which has gained aspirational value through the years, received tremendous response, with hundreds of entries pouring in. Soundtracks and albums released between 1 January 2015 and 31 December 2015 were eligible for nomination.

The entries were screened by the IRAA Awards Jury Members who are all involved creatively and/or technically in the recording industry, and the final nominees were determined by the IRAA committee.

For the first time in 10 years, a voting process was initiated which garnered great response from the industry. The process was open to all recording artists and music industry professionals and gave registered members an opportunity to vote on the IRAA website.

“IRAA has a great future; there are lots of initiatives that will strengthen in the coming years, for instance the academy aspect with registration of any recording artist whether he is a musician or a singer, composer or a lyricist. As long as he is a recording artist and he has recorded any album, whether on the smallest record label or the biggest record label, he will have full right to register himself as the voting member of the academy on the website and this is a long term journey and we hope to have a huge membership, going forward,” says Founder & Chairman of IRAA, Mr. Anil Chopra.
