International Reggae And World Music Awards 2013

By special request and popular demand, the Annual International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA), by Martin's International, returns to South Florida for its 32nd Anniversary, for the fifth time in 26years. On Saturday, May 4th, 2013, the prestigious Coral Springs Center for the Arts, 2855 Coral Springs Drive, in Coral Springs/Fort Lauderdale, Florida will be the site for the staging of the star-studded 32nd Annual IRAWMA.  The red carpet arrival with the glitz, glamour and interviews, kicks off at 6:00pm. Special early-bird tickets go on sale Friday, October 5th, 2012 at www.coralspringscenterforthearts.com or www.irawma.com. For information call 877-9-REGGAE (734-423) or 312-427-0266.

In 1987, the Studio 183 in Carol City was the venue for the sold out 6th annual IRAWMA's first South Florida visit. The following year IRAWMA returned to the same venue for another sold out event. In 1992 the Sunrise Music Theatre was IRAWMA's venue of choice for one of its most memorable celebrations, which featured the late CBS Trapper John MD star Madge Sinclair, Third World, Marcia Griffiths, Andrew Tosh and a host of other celebrities. In 1993 IRAWMA made its fourth South Florida hosting in downtown Miami where the Hon. Rita Marley made one her most outstanding IRAWMA's appearances.
Since its last staging in Florida, IRAWMA has traveled to several cities worldwide. Among those cities hosting the IRAWMA, are: Atlanta, New Orleans, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and New York, where by popular demand, it stayed for eight consecutive years, primarily at the world famous Apollo Theatre, before hosting its 30th Anniversary at the state of the art NAPA in Trinidad.
Every ten years IRAWMA goes to the Caribbean. After fifteen years on the road, it returned to its birthplace, Chicago, in July, 2012 for the 31st celebration which was combined for the first time ever with its sister event, the International Festival of Life (IFOL). In 2013, it's on the road again, as the most important celebration for reggae and world music looks forward to the great South Florida return at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts. Visit www.irawma.com or www.martinsinternational.com for more information on IRAWMA.
More than 20 million fans worldwide have viewed the annual IRAWMA via television and internet/social network in the last three years.

The 32nd IRAWMA will be heavily promoted throughout the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, South America and Europe, among other countries.
In a few weeks nomination ballots will be released world-wide for reggae and world music experts to contribute in the selection of the 2012 nominees for the most coveted 32nd IRAWMA Awards.
