Musician, improviser, collaborator, singer, songwriter and principally an electric violin player
Xani is an Australian performing composer and improvising electric violinist with diverse musical experience, reflecting a versatility and innovative spirit. Xani’s compositions venture into the spaces between jazz, pop, electronic, folk and sound art. A highly revered musician, Xani’s performance is unwavering and furiously energetic, displaying fearless duty to her craft. Driving electronic effect pedals with finesse, live looping charging her highly improvised sets, Xani’s live repertoire is coloured by the ferocity of her instrumental output and shaded by a deep creativity, her earnest voice and pure joy. Curious about pushing traditionally classical boundaries of violin playing through improvisation, inclusion of electronic effects and live looping, Xani creates energetic and exciting immersive experiences. “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)
