Melbourne-based, worldwide beloved and twice Grammy nominated Hiatus Kaiyote returns to Rotterdam! The experimental band with a colorful front lady crosses every border of soul, hip-hop, funk and R&B. Wednesday October 12, 2022 Hiatus Kaiyote will bring their future sounds to Theater Rotterdam. Final tickets are available via Ticketmaster.
The members of Hiatus Kaiyote got to know each other when former fire dancer and current frontwoman Nai Palm performed a pink guitar at a small Melbourne club. Bassist Paul Bender saw her, brought in drummer Perrin Moss and keyboardist Simon Mavin and the super quartet was born. Hiatus Kaiyote broke through in 2012 with their first LP Tawk Tomhawk and immediately captured the hearts of music lovers and artists such as Erykah Badu, Prince and Questlove. They also received the stamp-of-approval from DJs such as Gilles Pieterson and DJ Jazzy Jeff. In addition, they were sampled on songs by The Carters (Beyonce & Jay-Z), Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, Chance The Rapper and Drake – with whom Nai Palm also collaborated on his Scorpion album.
In 2015, they dropped their sophmore album Choose Your Weapon which once again received critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. It took a while for the band to get back into the studio together; singer/guitarist Nai Palm was diagnosed with breast cancer. During that time she composed many songs that would later appear on their newly released album Mood Valiant. During her treatment, Nai’s outlook on life changed, a theme explored on the album. Mood Valiant is an act of love, of courage, of changed perspective, of sister-and-brotherhood.
