If you’re not familiar with this chart, the National Indigenous Music Chart playlist on Spotify is a pioneering effort that is making strides in amplifying Indigenous music and artists. The chart, a product of the partnership between the National Indigenous Music Awards, Radio Monitor, and the SGC Group, features the most-heard Indigenous songs across Australian radio on a weekly basis, spotlighting a wide array of Indigenous talent on Australia’s airwaves?.
The playlist is powered by Radio Monitor and tracks the most-heard First Nations tracks across Australian radio, showcasing a diverse range of artists. What sets this playlist apart is its commitment to promoting Indigenous artists and giving listeners music tailored to different genres. Spotify’s support for First Nations artists has grown into an initiative called Dreaming Loud, which features multiple playlists and programs designed to amplify these talented creators.
