A Black and White Christmas wins Hamilton Music Award!

Neeraj Prem accepting our Hamilton Music AwardA Black and White Christmas, our recent Christmas album with sitar maestro, Neeraj Prem, just won a Hamilton Music Award for best religious recording! Neeraj was able to attend the gala on our behalf (thanks, Neeraj!) to hear the results and accept the award, a lovely treble clef statuette which you see him holding here.

So if you haven't yet purchased any award-winning Christmas music as a gift this year, now is the time. :) Available through our production company, MelodicArts Media as a CD or as a digital download. You can also get A Black and White Christmas through iTunes and all other major download services around the world.

A big thanks to all of you for your support of independent music, and of uniquely intercultural projects such as this one! And a big thanks to Neeraj for his friendship and his musical gifts.
