You read that right—Australia’s R&B princess PANIA is set to make her Sydney Opera House debut on May 27, playing a headline show in in the Utzon Room as part of Sydney’s Vivid festival.
Hailing from the cultural nexus of west Melbourne, the last few years have seen PANIA emerge as a frontrunner of Australia’s burgeoning R&B scene.
Speaking about the show to Complex AU PANIA said, “It’s a bit stressful, I know I’ll get excited the day of, but leading up to it I’m so stressed.”
“But when I put things into perspective I feel proud and good about it.”
Fresh from touring the country supporting Kehlani on her Blue Water Road Trip tour, as well as playing her own first headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney, her Utzon Room show is highly anticipated.
2022 was a breakout year for PANIA with a string of hit tracks including “tiki” and “MY CREW”, as well as the release of her debut EP burnt ur clothes & changed the addy. This year she’s managed to pick up even more momentum with the release of the P PACK and her latest track “ALL MINE”.
