Iconic music videos from the NITV vault will be interspersed with news updates from polling booths and community gatherings across the nation. The music videos include hits from artists such as Yothu Yindi, Warumpi Band and Christine Anu, as well as new generation performers - BAARKA, Budjerah,King Stingray and more.

Tanya Denning-Orman, a proud Birri and Guugu Yimidhirr woman and Director of Indigenous Content at SBS, said: October 14 represents a critical moment in Australia's history, and across the SBS network we're focused on ensuring all Australians have the information they need before they vote - whatever you decide, be sure you're making an informed decision.

At the heart of our plans for the days ahead continues to be ensuring the voices and perspectives from First Nations communities across the continent are heard, and that Australians have the opportunity to connect with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories and cultures through diverse programming beyond our news and current affairs coverage.

As a part of that, we're excited to announce Sounds of Solidarity - an incredible music showcase on NITV that will inspire all Australians, celebrating the power of Blak excellence through music and culture, while also providing a safe space for mob on referendum day.
