Xani Kolac – Live Performance

Unclassified (All Ages)


Sat 2 Sep 2023

See below for additional related events

Join musician and songwriter Xani Kolac for a special live performance for Goddess Weekend.

Musician and songwriter Xani Kolac's performances are unwavering and furiously energetic. Principally a violinist, her improvised live sets are defined by electronic effect pedals and looping driven with fearless finesse, coloured by the ferocity of her instrumental output and shaded by deep creativity, her earnest voice and pure joy.

Of all the countless violinists I’ve played with over the years, Xani stands out as one of the greatest. She’s got that rare thing called soul.

Jens Lekman

It’s rare to hear a musician who plays as gloriously and with as much passion as Xani.

The Stand Up Against Street Harassment campaign and intervention program, an initiative by L’Oréal Paris in partnership with girls’ rights charity Plan International Australia, is focused on raising awareness about street harassment, and providing training in the 5 Ds – Distract, Delegate, Document, Direct, and Delay – to support bystanders to safely stand up to street harassment when they see it.
