National Indigenous Music Awards unveil 2021 live performance lineup

The theme for this year’s instalment is collective experience, healing and reflection. “The vision for this year’s awards is to draw on our opportunity to come together and celebrate in person and as a community,” Creative Director Ben Graetz shares.

This year we focus on healing as a community and how, through the magnetism of music, we can make this happen.”
