"With no historical constraints, an Australian group (bandaluzia) have made flamenco their own." - SMH 2012

This acclaimed modern flamenco dance and music ensemble works at the forefront of Flamenco, jazz and  world music in Australia. Celebrated for their unique Australian interpretation of the powerful music and dance form ‘flamenco’ Bandaluzia Flamenco have thrilled audiences nationally and internationally with their blend of passion and virtuosity.

Led by ARIA-nominated virtuoso flamenco guitarist Damian Wright the ensemble feature Dance Australia Magazine's "Most Outstanding Dancer of 2013" Flamenco star Jessica Statham, Freedman fellowship winner and National Jazz Awards finalist Ben Hauptmann on Mandolin, and  brilliant percussionist James Hauptmann.

Bandaluzia are highly revered for their ability to mix elements of other genres into their performances and their dynamic performances and explosive displays of dazzling musicianship and virtuosity.  Declared  the ‘ Pick Of the Sydney Fringe" at The Sydney Fringe, invited artist to TEDX Sydney 2014, they have performed to sold out houses at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall and headlined The International Gypsy Music Festival,  The Global Carnival.
 
The opening piece, Oceania (Wright) exemplified how the singings primal rawness contrast with the guitars lyrical refinement, while Statham’s dancing bridged the two, from the graceful elegance of her arm movement to the furious rhythmic precision of her footwork....Hunter gave a rapturous solo introduction to Khyal (Wright) before slipping into another groove with Hauptmann behind another dazzling improvisation by Wright.” John Shand SMH 17/09/12
