The 7th Chinese Music Media Awards ceremony was held on Saturday in Hong Kong. As always, it dedicated some of its top awards in recognition of non-mainstream musicians.

Beijing-based folk musician Wan Xiaoli, a former full-time bar singer who is still a regular in the local bar scene, was honored as the Best Folk Artist.

The Best Rock Artist award went to Shanghai folk-cum-punk band Top Floor Circus, and Beijing-based electronic musician Shao Yanpeng, better known as Dead J, grabbed the Best Electronic Artist award.

Twenty-six-year-old Taiwan indie singer Deserts Chang became this year's Best New Mandarin Artist for her debut album "My Life Will...."

Another non-mainstream Taiwan singer, Summer Lei, was named as the Best Mandarin Female Singer for her album "The Light of Darkness." She beat out close rivals Jolin Tsai and Joey Yung.

Some mainstream singers also took their place on the list of top award winners. Hong Kong's Eason Chan claimed both the award for Best Cantonese Male Singer and Singer of the Year.

Rising Hong Kong pop singer Kay Tse received the Best Cantonese Female Singer award for her album "Ksus2."

Taiwan veteran singer Bobby Chen was honored as the Best Mandarin Male Singer for his album "These People, Those People."
