Bandaluzia are celebrated for their powerful performances, unique sound and explosive displays of dazzling musicianship and virtuosity.
Acclaimed modern flamenco ensemble Bandaluzia led by ARIA nominated flamenco guitarist Damian Wright present a spectacular new show that showcases contemporary flamenco dance and music whilst displaying the essential characteristics of the flamenco tradition.
Joining Damian will be acclaimed flamenco dancers Jessica Statham and Rosalie Cocchiaro.
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.
