Ljubičica – Wild Violet is the story of a young girl growing up in Croatia and journeying to Australia. Jospia brings outstanding vocals and a highly vibacious energy to The Butterfly Club stage, which charms and captivates the audience. The show is full of nostalgia and tales of family- to take in, is as sweet as a smooth red velvet cupcake.

Violet coloured flowers sprinkle and flutter from imaginary mounds at several points during the show, adding a visual backing to the poetic words in her stories. Jospia is full of light, colour, and culture, as she moves, dances and sings with beauty. Her sister joins her on stage mid-way through the show, and their vocals melt together to perfection. It is luscious and wonderful to listen to.

Jospia and her sister are accompanied by two musicians who bring gypsy style melodies on guitar and violin.
