Nai Palm At The Gasometer w/ Jaala (Solo)
BANDROOM // TICKETS $39.90 incl. BF
Nai Palm, a two-time Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and musician from Australia, is the type of artist that arrives once in a generation.
She is a composer, instrumentalist, producer, vocalist and poet who approaches all of these self-taught disciplines with an intuitive, infectious grace which sent her on a journey to sculpt songs that have been received and treasured across the world. It is a world she has travelled many times over with her live band project Hiatus Kaiyote, who along with Nai Palm have become household names since they first began playing together in Melbourne in 2011.
After the independent release of their debut album Tawk Tomahawk, word of mouth caught on like wildfire and within months they were championed by a host of RnB and Hiphop’s most respected tastemakers and icons (?uestlove, Jazzy Jeff, Erykah Badu, Prince). This eventually led to their signing with Salaam Remi's new imprint Flying Buddha in 2013 and a Grammy Nomination for Best RnB Performance for their single “Nakamarra feat. Q-Tip.” Making them the first Australian artist ever to be recognised by the Grammys in that category.
In response, Hiatus Kaiyote exceeded expectations with their critically acclaimed opus Choose Your Weapon which earned their second Grammy nomination and cemented their uncompromising artistic vision to transcend genre and the trappings and clichés of the industry.
These choices have led to the band’s continual growth in a lane of their own design, garnering the respect and actively inspiring today’s most celebrated musical icons. In 2016 producer 9 th Wonder sampled them for Anderson Paak’s album Malibu. And in 2017 their album has been sampled and used on two of Hiphop’s biggest releases, opening Drakes project More Life, and closing Kendrick Lamar’s album Damn.
