Claimed by neo-soul queen Jill Scott as her and Erykah Badu’s musical love child, sassy singer-songwriter Kaiit is one to watch.

By the age of 20, this Papua New Guinean-born, Melbourne-based performer had already shaken up the R&B world with her velvety vocals and lyrical prowess and found herself named in Red Bull Music’s best rappers under 25, sharing the list with artists such as Joey Bada$$ and Chance the Rapper. Blessed with an enchanting voice that crosses musical boundaries, her intimate future-soul offers brave vulnerability with a vintage hip-hop flow. Evident in her sound and style, she draws inspiration from her idols Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and the contemporary sounds of Noname Gypsy and SZA.
