Mar 21 HIATUS KAIYOTE
at NGV International
DOMENICO DE CLARIO / PHILIP SAMARTZIS NGV Australia
Hiatus Kaiyote is the sound of serendipity. Every so often a band comes along that captures the collective imagination, a band that has all the essential elements in place to become a musical movement. The music of Hiatus Kaiyote strikes the perfect note merging poetry and polyrhythms. On the band’s debut album Tawk Tomahawk
it’s as if the vast desert landscape has opened up, borrowing ingredients from far-reaching lands to concoct a distinctive flavor that is the essence of all its parts. Each song whispers of delicious, ancient stories untold.
Hiatus Kaiyote have been singled out by Stereogum as a ‘Band to Watch’ and named by Gilles Peterson as Breakthrough Artist of 2013. Fresh off an 18 date tour of the US and Europe that saw the band play a killer run of shows, amassing rave reviews in their wake, the band has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best R&B Performance for the track Nakamarra from the album Tawk Tomahawk
