Hiatus Kauyote Melbourne & Sydney Headline Shows 2013

Fresh from their world-conquering overseas tour, Hiatus Kaiyote return to Australia to play their first shows in five months at the prestigious Melbourne Festival and a headline show at The Standard in Sydney.

Filling that time away from home with an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, supporting D’Angelo and Erykah Badu in the US and playing European mainstay festivals like Worldwide, Montreaux and Dour, Hiatus Kaiyote’s brand of Future Soul has well and truly captured the world’s imagination, not to mention that of super-Producer Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, The Fugees), who has signed them to his new Sony imprint Flying Buddha. The worldwide re-release of debut mini LP ‘Talk Tomahawk’ is out now and features a new version of the band’s breakthrough track ‘Nakamarra’ featuring legendary MC Q-Tip (A Tribe Called Quest) guesting on a verse.

Hiatus Kaiyote has a style that can’t be easily pinpointed. Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Tupac Shakur, Flying Lotus, traditional flamenco and music from Mali and Colombia have influenced the group. “You’re eradicating labels of barriers,” says singer-songwriter Nai Palm. “The words are important, but the way they’re shaped makes them malleable for the listener to absorb. How you proceed involves a larger activity and I love that.”

Do not miss the opportunity to witness one of the hottest acts in the world right now in what may be their final intimate appearances for some time. After the recent sellout performance co-headlining with Thundercat at The Forum as part of Melbourne International Jazz Festival, these shows are anticipated to sell out in record time.
