The Contemporary Australian Music Showcase will see some of the country’s finest bands and musicians take to the stage at Indian music festivals and clubs.
Kaiit, hailed as one of the most exciting artists to watch in 2018, will perform at the Jazz India Circuit in Goa.
Born in Papua New Guinea, Kaiit bounced back and forth between Australia and her homeland as a child before her family eventually settled down in Melbourne. Kaiit grew up listening to alternative music, with her parents embracing the likes of Pink Floyd. Over the years she developed a love for jazz and neo-soul, which is evident in her music. Kaiit draws inspiration from her idols Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and the contemporary sounds of Noname Gypsy and SZA. Kaiit’s artistic background in both beauty and fashion is apparent in her inimitable style and edgy aesthetic. At only 19 years old, Kaiit has shaken up the world of future-soul and RnB. She’s been named as one the best rappers under 25 by Red Bull Music, sharing the list with artists such as Joey Bada$$ and Chance the Rapper. Kaiit’s first two releases ‘Natural Woman’ and ‘2000 n Somethin’ have together clocked over 1.2 million streams on Spotify and been shown plenty of love from Triple J and Triple R.
Kaiit’s Indian tour is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
