The Anugerah Musik Indonesia (English translation: Indonesian Music Awards), also known as AMI or colloquially AMI Awards is an annual Indonesian major music awards, to recognize outstanding achievement for improving the quality and quantity of artist in the mainly-Indonesian language music industry. They have been compared to the American Grammy Awards, and British Brit Awards. It shares recognition of the music industry as that of the other performance awards, such as the Panasonic Gobel Awards (television) and Festival Film Indonesia (motion pictures).



The awards were formalized as the Indonesian Music Awards in 1997 as a joint project between ASIRI (Recording Industry Association of Indonesia), PAPPRI (Singers, Songwriters, and Music Record Producers Association of Indonesia), and KCI (Copyright Office of Indonesia). [1]


Each of the three founding organizations originally contributed one board member, under the direction of Indonesian country singer, Tantowi Yahya. Under this board was another, less powerful board. There are afterwards further divisions based on specialty, including Marketing, Communication, and Membership. [1] In 2016, jazz musician Dwiki Dharmawan replacing to Yahya for Leader of Chairman.
