AMI Awards 2023 Adds 6 New Categories, Including Koplo and Orchestra

The most prestigious music award event in the country, Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) Awards 2023 adds six new music categories, two of which are the koplo and orchestra genres.

At a press conference in Jakarta, on Thursday, Chairman of the AMI Foundation, Candra Darusman said the addition of this category was based on the growing Indonesian music industry. It’s also aligned with the theme of the 26th AMI Awards, “Celebrating Differences”.

“Of course, because of the different types of music, and that way those who are appreciated will be more widely embraced,” he said.

The six new categories are “Best Male/Female Solo Artist/Group/Coplo Collaboration”; “Best Male/Female Solo Artist/Group/Malay Collaboration”; “Best Orchestral Work”, “Best Film Scoring Album”; “Best Musical Album”, and “Best Alternative Album”.

On the same occasion, the AMI Awards Categorization Session Team, Syahrani, said that the addition of new categories had actually been planned for several years. However, the number of musicians producing the genre has not yet met the quota for awards.

“For years we have proposed these categories but there are not many participants. But, now there are more and more. This is a sign that the development is also getting better. Hopefully, next year there will be more,” Syahrani explained.

The 2023 AMI Awards for the first time will be held offline at the Jakarta International Expo (Jiexpo) Kemayoran, Jakarta, on November 8.

A total of 4,858 songs were registered this year, in the form of single and album production works that were commercially released in the period July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023.

The results of the AMI categorization trial which took place from July 18 to August 3, 2023, were conducted offline and online. There are a total of 62 categories in this year’s AMI Awards.
