Concept

Music is a universal language that binds the world together. Music knows no caste, creed or gender. It opens it arms to everyone. It knows no limitations. Nor is it bound by boundaries.
It has the power to uplift one’s soul and express feelings when even words fail to do so. It has the power to change the world and lives of people who believe and practice it. It brings fame, love and respect that never fades. There is nothing that music cannot do.
And Konkani music, it has a charm of its own, that even legendary singers like Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle and Usha Uthup could not resist. Konkani music has so much to give the world. It gave the world Lorna, C. Alvares, Alfred Rose among the others. It’s known for its soulful, heartwarming and peppy music. And now it’s time to give the world a few more legendary musicians.

Which is why, we bring you World Konkani Music Awards – a first of its kind initiative that gives a platform to upcoming Konkani artists to display their talent to the world.This Award merges technology and passion to give you the opportunity to let your voice be heard from any corner of the world. All one needs to do is register and upload their entries on our website. This platform is not only dedicated to singers but also to lyricists, composers and musicians.
