Nadya Golski, that queen of gypsy soul and her spirited band of virtuoso musicians, The 101 Candles Orkestra, is world music at its best. It has all the verve and style. An alchemical mix of picquant melodies and spellbinding rhythms, styles ranging from Slavic melancholia and Manouche inspired French Chanson embracing Piaf, to romantic waltzes, tangos and boleros, alternating fast rhythms, toes tapping, hands clapping, dancers on their feet, characterises a night with The Candles. Nadya Golski the central personality and lead singer is renowned for her intense vitality and extraordinary vocal delivery, good humour, unpredictability and charm.
She is a warm and humorous entertainer. It is an interesting story which lies behind her performance. Following teenage life in a remote highland village in PNG, Nadya became a sort of super-star in her twenties, singing in pidgin and local dialect, being toured around PNG and the Pacific, and this is where she learned a lot of her extraordinary musicality and ability for harmonies…Since then, years in Paris, working with famous gypsy musicians Nadya has acquired gypsy vocal techniques which enrich her current performance, giving it curvaceous magnitude. The Candles have been performing in and around Europe, across Australia, at Montreux, Edinburgh, Womadelaide, Cziget, Woodford and MONA. Don’t miss them!
