Nadya’s 101 Candles Orkestra, a well-known Sydney band has given a resounding voice that unites souls that have been on the fringes of Europe – Serbs, Macedonians, Jews, Gypsies and others. Nadya and her 101 Candles Orkestra vibrates souls, its infectious spirit bonding communities with each other and with the locals, and as past is mixed with present, generations blend. Musical traditions, which have stirred deep emotions, released ancient yearnings and kept feet dancing in Europe for centuries, are re-vamped and brought into the present by effervescent Sydney girl Nadya Golski, the central personality and lead singer who’s prodigious ear, intense vitality, and extraordinary vocal delivery have brought together a disparate group of virtuoso musicians from multi-cultural Sydney. Nadya’s is the voice which makes the music present and exciting, never suppressing the Individuality of the musicians, and producing an unforgettable sound.

This group embraces Poland, Russia, France, Spain and even South Pacific Island cultures with surprising twists of jazz and blues in English, woven magically into the vital and mysterious tapestry of a wonderful performance.

Nadya’s first ever tour was a promotional tour of the South Pacific Islands, sponsored by Pepsi Cola and later Coca Cola, in which she achieved legendary status. Soon after returning from performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival 2005, the band again toured Europe in 2006, playing at the Sziget Festival in Hungary and many venues in Poland and France including The Tygmont Jazz Club in Warsaw, Centrum Kultury and Muszil Koncertowia in Lublin & La Chemane in Paris. They also lead vocal workshops at the acclaimed Gardzienice Theatre Company. They were also chosen to perform at the 2006 Oxfam Concert in Sydney at the Shangri-la
