The Nomination

Pacha’s Pajamas joins more than 300 exceptional self-released and independent label artists as Nominees in The 12th Independent Music Awards (The IMAs), the influential awards program for independent bands and fans.

Pacha’s Pajamas is one of five nominees in the Children’s Music Album category.

Representing the broad spectrum of today’s global independent music scene, the Nominees in over 80 Album, Song, Music Video and Design categories were culled from thousands of submissions from North America, South America, Asia, Africa, Australia, Greenland and Europe.

If Pacha’s Pajamas wins the Children’s Music award, as shown in the Infographic below, it will break five years of precedent in a number of ways. Most notable, previous albums did not feature youth singers or ethnically diverse artists. In addition, A Story Written By Nature is a concept album that places the music within the context of a magical story.
