“Bandaluzia is winning high praise for its unique Australian interpretation of the powerful music and dance form….with their thrilling blend of passion and virtuosity” SMH

Acclaimed modern flamenco ensemble Bandaluzia led by ARIA nominated flamenco guitarist Damian Wright presents a spectacular new show that showcases contemporary flamenco dance and music whilst displaying the essential characteristics of the flamenco tradition. A journey through this unique and incredible art form by some of Australia and Spain's most revered flamenco artists.

In 2018 Damian performed in Jerez, Spain at La Conferencia de Jose Luis Balao as part of the Jerez International Guitar Festival and was invited to perform as a solo artist at The Rajasthan International Folk Festival, India as well as The Shanghai Fringe Festival, China.

Joining Damian will be Dance Australia Magazine's "Most Outstanding Dancer of 2013" and co-winner of "Best Dance Show" at The Adelaide Fringe 2014 Jessica Statham (flamenco dance) and Rosalie Cocchiaro (flamenco dance) who, living in Madrid for 10 years, has performed in many of Madrid’s premier tablaos (flamenco venues), including Cafe de Chinitas and Torres Bermejas.

On guitars & mandolin, Freedman fellowship winner and National Jazz Awards finalist Ben Hauptmann (Katie Noonan, Gurrumul, Lior) and brilliant percussionist James Hauptmann (James Morrison, Vince Jones, Bluejuice) round out this stellar ensemble.

Bandaluzia are highly revered for their ability to mix elements of other genres into their performances, whether being the rich harmonies of Jazz, the exotic melodies of the Orient or the infectious rhythms of South America. This will be an experience that ignites the senses with the grace of flamenco.
