Hiatus Kaiyote - Nakamarra
Filmed by Danni Ogilvie

Produced by Danni Ogilvie + Si Jay Gould



It took us 9 days of travelling through the desert and ghost townships of South Australia, Victoria and Northern Terriories and in the end we had travelled 5,000 kilometers to Alice Springs from Melbourne in a hire car and back.

We walked through red and yellow deserts, swam in freezing waterholes, slept in abandoned mine shafts, wrote off our hire van after hitting a kangaroo, camped under thousands of stars, salvaged eagle feathers, saw emus, dingos, ate camel burgers, made music and bonded all while making our very first film clip.

The concept was for us to journey as a band where the song was first inspired and written by Nai Palm.



In Nai's words "Nakamarra was written about her friend Hannah, I wrote about her because she is one of the strongest people I know. And she is the type of person that you can not see for a long time but they will always remain like your family. She was working out in the desert with Aboriginal artists with mental disabilities. We got tattoos on our arms together which is present in the lyrcs "rise togther with our hearts apon our sleeves for all too see". I also wore the tacky auqua dress in the clip because she is obsessed with the colour. It's about making life long bonds with the family you get to choose"

We had an incredible journey out there.



Lyrics "Hannah my darling i will follow you into the sunrise under desert sky

we fly, rise together with our hearts upon our sleeves for all to see

we two will breathe, aqua queen tho vast distance between us, heart sails with love

for you, i love you, i love you i do

love you, i love you, i love you i do

Nakamarra sweet red earth will hold you like the strength you bless to me

true we engage humility, watch me struggle with your words however truthful they may be

we'll see in time, opening our hearts and nurturing our minds to shine

i love you,i love you, i love you i do

love you, i love you, i love you i do,

Oh it sets our hearts to fire, sweeps you and i

honey dont you know it sets our heart to fire, sweeps you and i

honey dont you know we two will pulse in through this light

honey dont you know we two will pulse,

ill always love you love you love you i do

love you i love you i love you i do

Hannah my darling i will follow you into the sunrise under desert sky

we fly,rise together with our hearts upon our sleeves for all to see

we two will breathe, aqua queen tho vast distance between us, heart sails with love

for you, i love you, i love you i do

love you, i love you, i love you i do

Oh it sets our hearts to fire, sweeps you and i

honey dont you know it sets our heart to fire, sweeps you and i

honey dont you know we two will pulse in through this light

honey dont you know we two will pulse,

ill always love you love you love you i do

love you i love you i love you i do"
