Bio

From dirt poor beginnings in Sri Lanka to explosive multi-instrumental powerhouse, ROSHANI's music is as captivating and uplifting as her life story.

Her father the village drummer, her mother the singer, impoverished and with no hope, had to give ROSHANI up for adoption. At 6 weeks old fate led her to the other side of the world, to a musical family living in music capital Tamworth.

ROSHANI’s music defies pigeonhole, timelessly crossing genre. Using loop pedals to lay down guitar, harmonica, keys, percussion and a voice that gives you goosebumps, ROSHANI developed her one-woman show while living in her van, busking on the streets and travelling wherever the wind took her.

In 2015, ROSHANI reunited with her Sri Lankan family after 28 years apart. 60 minutes Australia followed her with camera crew and her story has had millions of views. Her mission in this life is to inspire and uplift the world with song and story.

A lowkey and moody one from Roshani. Listen on as she gives this one everything she's got vocally.
