Is it possible to reference an audio file from another sound bank?

An example:

Episode 1 we load Episode1SoundBank and play Music1.ogg.
In Episode 2, we load Episode2SoundBank but will also need the Music1.ogg without loading the rest of Level1SoundBank. 

Can we reference Music1.ogg directly in Episode1SoundBank or should we duplicate Music1.ogg to the Episode2SoundBank to get it for Episode2?

If it's in memory sample, then you would have to load the entire bank, but if it's streaming the file is stored outside the bank and you should be able to reference the file with an event in your 'Episode2SoundBank' without it being duplicated.

Alternative, you could use ExternalSources system to manually decide what source file to play for an event like music.
