MUMBAI: It was a scintillating Saturday night at Mumbai’s Sahara Star hotel as the stars aligned to stage the second edition of’s Clef Music Awards.

In India one tends to associate music with Film or Bollywood music but there’s so much more out there waiting to be discovered. Raising a toast to all such independent musicians & original music creators the CMA awards honoured musical accomplishments for the period August 2021 - August 2022 in a one-of-a-kind celebration held on 24 September. The first edition of the event took place virtually last year due to the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year's event commenced with a poignant moment as the ITV founder and editor-in-chief Anil Wanvari posthumously recalled the contributions of the industry’s legends and music veterans- namely Bappi Lahiri, KK Menon, Bhupinder Singh, and the nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar- all of whom we lost in the past year.
