HIATUS KAIYOTE - TAWK TOMAHAWK

Hiatus Kaiyote - Tawk TomahawkThe music of Hiatus Kaiyote strikes the perfect note merging poetry and polyrhythms.

Hiatus Kaiyote has a style that can't be easily pinpointed. Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Tupac Shakur, Flying Lotus, traditional flamenco and music from Mali and Colombia have influenced the group. We could call it 'Future Soul'.

Stereogum singled out Hiatus Kaiyote as a "Band to Watch." Gilles Peterson named them the Breakthrough Artist of 2013. Even Prince has tweeted about the band, so you better not sleep on this one.
