Nakamarra, a sonic sound of infectious indie grooves and glimmering vocals.

If Wolf Alice, Foals & Adele had a baby it would sound like Nakamarra"


Nakamarra have created their own successes since forming late 2016. They met and developed their sound at University on the Isle of Wight.


As a band they have proved their worth on the CIRCUIT with performances across a number of commercial festivals in 2017 with highlights performances at Isle of Wight Festival 2017 where they opened the Main Stage for the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen and Arcade Fire.


Along side this they were the Closing Headline band at Bestival 217, on the Invaders of the Future stage - Hand picked by Bestival Curator Rob Da Bank who has supported us early on and has championed our ‘Soul, Power and Instrumental Dexterity’.


The band have SUCCESSFULLY released 2 ep's and 2 singles all released on chalkpit records. The band has RECEIVED extensive air time on bbc introducing solent and bbc solent radio over the last 6 months. 



"Nakamarra – expect the unexpected. Dreamy and soulful, you can’t help but be drawn in."
 Steph Nieuwenhuys, BBC Introducing Solent. (2017)
"Brooding with no end in sight, the most recent offering from Nakamarra is a rolling track, pushing forward wave after wave of smooth vocals and painstakingly written guitar lines. It’s the first release from their band since their 'Zacapa' EP last year, and shows no sign of the band slowing down with their ambient sound."

‘Nakamarra blew me away at my Number One Island night much soul, power and multi instrumental dexterity - definitely destined for big things’ -
Rob Da Bank (2017)
The vocals of Nakamarra’s female frontrunner are particularly worth appreciation. Effortless, rich and alluring; no indie playlist should be complete without this track.

'Ever since their performance on the Platform One Stage at the Isle of Wight Festival this year, indie-electronic five-piece Nakamarra have really been making a name for themselves on the local scene'
