2006″ at the 3rd Jazz IM Award! 17th June ’06
Yet another feather in the cap. As in the past Ali Azmat was recently Awarded at the Indus Vision Style Awards for Best Style of Sound and several other times for his unique flair in music.
June 17, 2006 Indus Music arranged for the Jazz IM Awards Ceremony in Lahore. Amongst the other nominees for the category of Best Pop Male Artist, namely; Sheeraz Uppal, Abbas Ali Khan, Jimmy Attrey and Shehzad Roy were given a chance to prove themselves. Ali Azmat on the other hand was also nominated for the two other categories: Deewana for Best Rock Song and Nare Na/Deewaana for Best Video. The foregoing significantly indicates the potential he possessive for promoting the music scene of Pakistan.
First INDUS Style Awards 2006
Style; defining the thought process of how one perceives oneself in a fashionable manner creating a definitive personality. Having this said, recently on our local media scene Indus Music promoted this very cause by arranging the very first of its kind here in Pakistan a category of `Style’ awards or more so `The Indus Music Style Awards’.
As we already know and usually see how most of our musicians tend to think that the only thing that matters in this profession is the music itself, no doubt it is the most important but not just the only object and there for end up compromising on the feel, aura and most importantly the style of how they perform and by that portraying who they are. As the industry seems to be coming up with more and more new bands and musicians sprouting like wild mushrooms, there are those who have made their mark. Initially by creating a definite sense of style and secondly initiating this very industry by pioneering what it’s all about.
The highest category for any nomination would be of its own kind, like screenplay or storyline for a movie, the best single or sound for a music award and naturally highest sense of style for a fashion category. Similarly at the IM Style Awards among the highest rated awards was the “Best Style of Sound” award for which there were quite a few nominations such as Ali Zafar who try’s to create an image but can’t really be sure as to what his style is, then there was Fuzon who are a classical band no doubt but they seemed to be `stuck’ at that. Jal apparently also seem to have fallen in this category though we wonder how as it’s usually the same pair of spectacles that are revolving in that band. Strings on the other hand were the only band that was proper competition for Ali Azmat in this category, as no doubt he was also nominated for this very award. The judges didn’t have to ponder much in this case to choose out of all, as it is quite apparent that the most versatile style of sound in this music industry is non-other than Ali Azmat. His skill, his voice and most of all his style and persona are by far the most appreciated by the people of our country and countries all over. If the people and fans were judging this category of award, I don’t think there would have been any other nominees.
