- In-person event
Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Awards (SSIMAs) presented by TD Bank Group, is a celebration of artistic excellence and accomplishments of First Nations, Inuit and Metis musicians.
The SSIMAs span 16 categories, honouring solo artists, duos and groups from across Canada while showcasing the diverse and growing music and culture of artistic expression and accomplishment within the Indigenous community. Nominees were selected from 250 Canada-wide submissions by an invited panel of jurors comprising Indigenous and music industry professionals. No public voting was involved in the selection process. This LIVE award show will be hosted by Anishinaabe activist, broadcaster and content creator Sarain Fox, and will feature six live performances.
A complete list of categories and nominees is attached. For more information please visit https://summersolsticefestivals.ca/2023-music-awards/
