Pamungkas, Lyodra, Iwan Fals and more win top prizes at Indonesian Music Awards 2021

Late Indonesian icon Glenn Fredly received a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award

This year’s Indonesian Music Awards (IMAs) has wrapped, with Pamungkas, Lyodra and Iwan Fals ranking among the night’s biggest winners.

The award show took place on December 6 and was streamed virtually due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. A total of 14 awards were handed out, 12 of them decided by fans who voted online.

Pamungkas was awarded the prize for Alternative Song Of The Year for his record-breaking hit track ‘To The Bone’, while singer-songwriter Lyodra – who was nominated for best Southeast Asian act at the MTV EMAs earlier this year – walked away with Album Of The Year for her self-titled record.


Pamungkas, who was on tour and unable to attend the award ceremony – thanked his fans via an Instagram post. “Thank you very much for the appreciation – again and again and again; more music coming out soon,” he said.

Veteran Indonesian rock band NOAH clinched the award for Duo/Group/Band Of The Year, while singer-songwriter icon Iwan Fals, who released the album ‘Pun Aku’ in September, was crowned Male Singer Of The Year.

The Female Singer Of The Year award went to Lesti, who also took home the awards for Social Media Artist Of The Year and Top Nada Sambung Pribadi (NSP).

Late Indonesian icon Glenn Fredly received a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award, while Anneth Delleicia was awarded Song Of The Year for ‘Mungkin Hari Ini Esok Atau Nanti’.
