About Nadya and the 101 Candles Orkestra

Nadya Golski sings what she loves. Under the broad description of ” Gypsy/Eastern European”, she also throws in significant French chanson influences, singing famous songs by Edith Piaf in Balkan time signatures, with Gypsy/ Balkan melodic introductions. Occasionally she even combines some influences of her deep past; Papua New Guinea and South Pacific Islands. This, with her warm performances and soulful and deep voice, marks what she does as unique and creatively free. She sings in many different languages, including Polish, Bosnian, Serbo Croatian, French, Italian, Romany, Romanian, and even South Pacific Dialects, and finally, in English, her mother language.

Her repertoire comprises her own songs in various languages, and interpretations of traditional songs from Eastern Europe, with the occasional reference to the South Pacific Islands and the Afro American Blues/Gospel tradition and French chanson.
