NAIDOC Week celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and recognises the huge contributions made by Indigenous Australians to life in this country. The NAIDOC 2021 theme – Heal Country! – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction.
We're lucky in this state to have some of the country's best exponents of Indigenous art and music, so we've put together a playlist of some of our fave NSW artists along with links where you can find out more and support to their work.

The staff of MusicNSW lives and works on the stolen land of the Gadigal, Djiringanj, Walbanga, Wandianian and Wiradjuri people, and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be.
