From the website : "Indaba Music has been a leader in the online music space since February of 2007. Over the years, extraordinary people and talent have been important members in the community. Because of their participation, members have generated significant income for themselves, have gone on to sign major label record deals and publishing deals, and have even been nominated for Grammy Awards. As importantly, members have developed meaningful personal relationships with other community members who have enriched their lives. In an effort to acknowledge some of the outstanding members of the Indaba community, we are establishing the annual Indaba Music Awards."
