The acclaimed modern flamenco ensemble, Bandaluzia, head to The Unorthodox Church Of Groove next Saturday 23 May for a night of infectious rhythms and a powerful dance performance.
Led by ARIA-nominated guitarist, Damian Wright, Bandaluzia have come to be known for their unique sound and interpretation of the flamenco style. Their explosive displays of dazzling musicianship and virtuosity has made Bandaluzia a great success at festivals and theatres across Australia.
Bandaluzia was recently awarded “The Pick Of the Sydney Fringe” at The Sydney Fringe Festival and performed to a sold out Sydney Opera House Concert Hall as an invited artist to TEDX Sydney 2014. Bandaluzia has also headlined The International Gypsy Music Festival, Sydney, The Global Carnival, and is on Musica Viva’s national touring program.
Alongside Damian Wright is Freedman Fellowship winner, Ben Hauptmann on Mandolin, and brilliant percussionist, James Hauptmann. Performing alongside the ensemble is Dance Australia Magazine’s “Most Outstanding Dancer of 2013” and co-winner of “Best Dance Show” at The Adelaide Fringe 2014, Jessica Statham.
Bandaluzia are also 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 irresistible rhythms of South America. An experience that ignites the senses with the grace of Flamenco.
