Artists from five continents nominated for the 2022 International Portuguese Music Awards

PROVIDENCE – Artists from five continents have been nominated for this year’s International Portuguese Music Awards (IPMA), including several local acts and some big names such as Salvador Sobral, the winner of the 2017 Eurovision song contest.

The nominees were revealed in a web stream hosted by ‘The Voice Portugal’ coach Aurea. The 10th IPMA show honoring artists of Portuguese descent is slated for Saturday, April 23, at the Providence Performing Arts Center.

BandFaith of New Bedford has been nominated for the 2022 International Portuguese Music Awards (IPMA) in the Best 'Música Popular' Performance category.

“As with most years, there were lots of new names that decided to participate,” said David Saraiva, who co-organizes the International Portuguese Music Awards with José “Zach” Xavier. “It’s great to see the amount of talent out there. For the first time ever, there are more nominations from Canada than the USA, so IPMA is gaining traction there.”

There will be 13 awards up for grabs in categories including rock, rap, fado, music video, and best new talent.
