Arrebato Ensemble is contemporary flamenco with edge. Led by acclaimed flamenco guitarist Greg Alfonzetti and Damien 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.
Their much anticipated third album is set to be released August 2018. Previous albums drew critical acclaim with John Shand stating, “Moves from pure flamenco in favour of a more contemporary style, the spirit, a dramatic, sexually charged and haughty sadness, remains intact.” (SMH).
The group’s first CD snared them the Best World Music Artist at the MusicOz Awards, performances at WOMADAdelaide, Sydney Festival, Apollo Bay Music Festival, Sydney Opera House and International Australian Festival of Chamber. The second CD Absolución, was launched at the Sydney Opera House in 2011 to a sell out audience and also enjoyed rave reviews.
