BANDALUZIA is an acclaimed modern flamenco ensemble led by ARIA nominated guitarist DAMIAN WRIGHT. In 2014 Damian was invited to perform as a solo artist at The Rajasthan International Folk Festival, INDIA and in 2015 performed at the XI XI International Music Festival, Hangzhou, CHINA. 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 headlined The International Gypsy Music Festival, Sydney, The Global Carnival and is on Musica Viva's national touring program. Known for their powerful performances, unique sound and explosive displays of dazzling musicianship and virtuosity that has made Bandaluzia a great success at festivals and theatres across Australia.
Featuring 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), Freedman fellowship winner and National Jazz Awards finalist BEN HAUPTMANN (Katie Noonan, Gurrumul, Lior etc....) on Mandolin & brilliant percussionist JAMES HAUPTMANN (James Morrison, Vince Jones, Bluejuice...etc).
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 infectious rhythms of South America. An experience that ignites the senses with the grace of Flamenco.
“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”
Gabrielle Wilder , SMH
