▲Hiatus Kaiyote are future soul. Based in Melbourne, the four-piece fuses neo-soul, hip hop and electronic beats with flavors of Latin, dubstep and opera, all presented with a cinematic sheen.
The band formed in mid-2011, and ever since they have been racking up accolades including a listing in the Who’s Hot 2012 feature in Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival Magazine. Their debut release, Tawk Tomohawk, peaked in the Top 10 played Albums on KCRW in June and July, 2012. The band has shared bills with Brainfeeder Records artists, Taylor McFerrin, Lapalux and oOoOO, Warp legends Chris Clark and Harmonic 313, sound genius Robin Fox. They have already been featured at Woodford Folk Festival (2011/12) and The Melbourne International Jazz Festival (2012).▼
The festivities will begin with the celebatory sounds of special guest DJ Jeremy Sole (KCRW / theLift / Afro Funke) setting the atmosphere on the 1s and 2s.
This will transition into an intimate presentation of last year’s epic “Peace Go With You, Gil” concert in tribute to the late cultural icon, Gil Scott-Heron. Those who missed the first tribute in 2012 will have a second opportunity to catch the
virtuosic performances by some of the most talented musicians in the world under the direction of celebrated musical director and drummer, Dexter Story.
Special guest for the night includes Scott-Heron’s daughter, Gia Scott-Heron.
