Here’s what some Portuguese Artists are up to that is bringing them international notoriety:
NORBERTO LOBO – IMPALA INDIE MUSIC AWARDS NOMINATION
Norberto Lobo foi nomeado para o prémio de melhor álbum europeu independente de 2012, atribuído pela Impala, organização de editoras discográficas independentes e Associações Independentes da Europa.
Os prémios Impala vão na terceira edição e pretendem “celebrar o generoso talento e diversidade musicais das edições discográficas independentes na Europa”.
O vencedor é escolhido independentemente das vendas. A organização Impala, criada em 2000, reúne mais de quatro mil membros, tendo a AMAEI entrado na IMPALA em 2013 como Associação de Música Independente Portuguesa. Ficará, assim, ao cargo da AMAEI o processo de selecção de futuros nomeados.
