Hailed as the ‘Breakthrough Artist’ of last years Byron Bay Bluesfest, ROSHANI is a star- on-the-rise.

Born into a musical family in Sri Lanka, at 6 weeks of age she was adopted and grew up in Tamworth, where she had the opportunity to nurture her gift.

She developed her one-woman show while living in her van, busking on the streets and travelling wherever the wind took her.

A genre blurring artist ROSHANI moves seamlessly between blues powerhouse, soul drenched torch singer, folk balladeer to electro house diva.

She builds her sounds using a range of foot pedals, loop stations, guitars, foot percussion, synths, harmonica and lush harmonies to create a truly unique musical experience.

With a voice that gives you goosebumps ROSHANI weaves story and song to uplift the soul.

Her amazing life story was featured on 60 Minutes Australia and has had over 10 million views worldwide.

“2022 breakthrough artist was Sri-Lankan born star in the making ROSHANI.”

-Byron Bay Bluesfest.

“Seeing ROSHANI on opening day reminded me of the first time Kasey Chambers played Bluesfest, I saw in ROSHANI what I saw years ago with Kasey Chambers. It was the first time I cried at Bluesfest. The first act I saw.”

-Peter Noble, Byron Bay Bluesfest Director.

“ROSHANI is one of the most exciting new voices in today’s Australian scene.”
