National Indigenous Television (NITV) are proud to give Australian audiences exclusive access to a unique tour from Troy Cassar-Daley in Sing About This Country.

Premiering on Saturday 18 December at 7:30pm, the feature documentary follows country music star Troy Cassar-Daley and his friends from The Black Image Band, brothers Cliff Harrigan, Pando Harrigan, Dylan Harrigan and Porky Harrigan, as they tour and perform in Indigenous communities throughout Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula.

Sing About This Country is a story of friendship, family and brotherhood, set amidst the backdrop of stunning remote landscapes and showcasing musical performances like no other.

Follow the group as they bring their music to isolated communities, culminating in a hometown performance in Cooktown in front of their family and friends, as well as a lively audience enjoying some good old-fashioned country music.

Troy Cassar-Daley said,

“”Every now and then you get to do something that fills your heart and soul to the brim, rekindling old friendships and reminiscing about the past on a very sacred part of our country. We got to feel the old people’s spirits around us as we travelled, heal together, play music together and sing about this amazing country of ours! Come along for the adventure with us.”

Tanya Denning-Orman, Director of Indigenous Content at SBS, said:

“What a combination – country music and the beautiful Cape York Peninsula. It’s a joy to have Troy and The Black Image Band take us all on this adventure.

“Music is at the heart and soul of First Nations culture, and we cannot wait to launch our new music documentary programming slate with the brilliant Sing About This Country.”

Sing About This Country will lead a new NITV music programming slate, with a music documentary airing every Saturday at 7:30pm from Saturday 18 December.

On Saturday 25 December, audiences can enjoy Nat King Cole: Afraid of the Dark, and the following Saturday 1 January Ella Fitzgerald will air at 7:30pm.
