The Master Jury of the Aga Khan Music Awards has announced laureates and finalists for the Awards’ inaugural cycle. 

The music awards were established by His Highness the Aga Khan to recognize creativity, promise, and enterprise in music performance. 

Laureates will share a $500,000 prize fund, and will also collaborate with the music awards to expand the impact of their work and develop their careers.

The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation from Lisbon will host a three-day event to celebrate the award on March 29-31.

Finalists of “Performance” category will perform for a live audience, including the Master Jury, following which the laureate in Performance will be announced at an Award ceremony on March 31.

In addition to Performance, award domains include: Music Creation; Education; Preservation, Revitalisation and Dissemination; Social Inclusion; and Distinguished and Enduring Contributions to Music. A special Patron’s Award will also be conferred.

The nine laureates and 14 finalists are from 13 countries across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and North. 

The Aga Khan Music Awards (AKMA) emerged from the Aga Khan Music Initiative (AKMI), which was launched to support talented musicians and music educators working to preserve, transmit, and further develop their musical heritage in contemporary forms.

In the beginning, the Initiative began its work in Central Asia, subsequently expanding its cultural development activities to include artistic communities and audiences in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia.
