Indian Summer Music Awards (ISMA)

RockIt Records & Recording, A Division of Heavygunz Enterprises Inc; is proud of our involvement and participation with the Indian Summer Music Awards. ISMA is run in conjunction with Indian Summer Festival, the largest cultural celebration of it's kind. ISMA is a musical competition that recognizes and promotes the very best in Native American music created and performed by both established and emerging artists.

Differentiating Aspects of the ISMA Competition

Unlike many other competitions, ISMA is not a 'popularity contest' but a technical, merit-based musical competition judged by industry professionals and peers. The general public does not vote in the competition. Every entry is fully auditioned and scored using a variety of artistic and technical criteria. Winners are decided based on aggregate scores. Judges are musicians, engineers, producers, musical educators, or other entertainment and media professionals. All judges have been screened and vetted to ensure a level of professional competency in their respective fields. Each judge possesses specific familiarity and expertise in the category or categories in which they judge.

ISMA Competitive Categories

The Indian Summer Music Awards currently contains fifteen (15) unique genres or categories in which entrants compete. These categories include: Rock, Blues, Country, Folk, Pop, Hip-Hop, Spiritual, Instrumental (both Contemporary/Modern and Classical/Traditional), Traditional Native American Drum, Traditional Native American Vocal, Native American Flute, Central and South American Indigenous Music, Spoken Word, and Native Spirit (a category open to non-native competitors only).
