KCRW Presents: Hiatus Kaiyote

November 15, 2013Melbourne, Australia's Hiatus Kaiyote doesn't fit naturally into any category, but its members don't shy away from the description "future soul." Watch dynamic singer Nai Palm and her crew perform "Nakamarra" live at KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic studios.

When your first full-length album draws fans like ?uestlove of The Roots and Gilles Peterson from the BBC, you've probably hit on something special. That's just what Melbourne, Australia's Hiatus Kaiyote did with Tawk Tomahawk, a record that blends jazz and soul with warm vocals and fuzzy effects.

It's hard to keep your eyes off singer Nai Palm: She's a true original, as you can see in this live performance of "Nakamarra" as part of Hiatus Kaiyote's Morning Becomes Eclectic debut.
