ARREBATO ENSEMBLE

“Arrebato”: (Spanish) a sudden and intense burst of emotion.

Arrebato Ensemble is contemporary flamenco with edge. Led by acclaimed flamenco guitarist Greg Alfonzetti and Damian de Boos-Smith (cello and guitar), the long-time collaborators are joined by Byron Mark (cajon and percussion), and dancer Chachy Peñalver, founder and director of Sydney Flamenco School. This new line-up creates passionately moving performances combining incisive ensemble playing, masterful solos and the beauty and power of flamenco dance. To celebrate the release of a much anticipated third album set to be released in July 2018, the group are undertaking an East Coast tour in October with additional performances in Sydney, Blue Mountains and Wollongong in the preceding months. The group’s previous albums drew critical acclaim with John Shand describing that while their music “moves from pure flamenco in favour of a more contemporary style, the spirit, a dramatic, sexually charged and haughty sadness, remains intact.” (SMH). Join us for this exquisite evening that promises to evoke the rhythms within you.
