‘Meditjin’ by Baker Boy featuring JessB | NIMA Film Clip of the Year 2020

Yolngu Matha

The official music video for ‘Meditjin’ features Baker Boy rapping in his native language of Yolngu Matha as well as English, alongside six barefoot Dancehall Dancers and two members of the Baker Boy family.

“The video for ‘Meditjin’ was such an exciting process to work through, the concept blew my mind, so I was just so pumped we managed to pull all the elements together. The small things in this video make me so excited, like having my brother, Adam, and cousin, Tristan in the clip. It wasn’t really planned but the timing worked out, so it was like ‘why not’, they were so excited too!”
– Baker Boy

The National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) are recognised as one of Australia’s most prominent Indigenous music awards and have been celebrating Australian music for nearly two decades.

The NIMAs showcase the rich musical landscape of Australia and highlight the music coming from all corners of the country. The Awards bring together acts who are yet to make their mark on the world alongside those who have achieved international acclaim, such as Gurrumul & Jessica Mauboy.

Held annually under the stars at Darwin’s historic Amphitheatre, The NIMAS bring audiences from all over Australia together to applaud the winners, enjoy the performances and soak up the ambiance of a night for music lovers of all ages and all cultures. Musicians such as Yothu Yindi, Gurrumul, The Tableland Drifters, Warren H. Williams and Arnhem Land rockstars Saltwater Band have performed and won awards as well.

The NIMAs are a special celebration of Indigenous music: a family friendly, not-to-be-missed event in the Darwin entertainment calendar and the Australian music calendar.

In 2020 due to COVID-19 they were broadcasted on Australian TV and online.
