Maybe you were in a band way back when. OIMA is a way for you to keep your music alive free of charge.

Either way let's preserve your music and keep it right here at the OIMA library.


This is the place for organizations that work with independent musicians from across Ontario to maybe brag a bit as well as archive any live recordings.

Curators could include independent record labels, campus and community radio stations, festivals, music blogs, venues, record shops, concert series, recording see where we're going with this, yeah?
