Nai Palm exists in her own dimension. 

The enigmatic singer, composer and frontwoman of future-jazz luminaries Hiatus Kaiyote has earned the respect and admiration of soul music royalty, including Erykah Badu, Questlove and Prince. Twice Grammy-nominated, her music has been sampled by Anderson.Paak (‘Malibu’), Drake (‘More Life’) and Kendrick Lamar (‘DAMN’). Along with her collaborators in Hiatus Kaiyote, she has paved the way for a new generation of musicians, inspired by her harmonic freedom and that singular voice.

Nai will present treasured songs from her catalogue in an intimate solo performance at Malthouse Outdoor Stage.
We are lucky to have her. 
"Okay, I’m done. I’m in love."
— Erykah Badu
