Hemispheres 9

Damian Wright

Hemispheres is back in November with stylish and virtuosic Sydney-based and Aria-nominated flamenco guitarist, Damian Wright, will be performing an exciting repertoire of solo flamenco works. Damian, guitarist with flamenco group, Bandaluzia, recently awarded “the pick of the Sydney Fringe Festival”, also focusses on solo performance, including to a sold-out Sydney Opera House concert as an invited artist to TEDX in 2014. In recent years Damian has performed solo at the Rajasthan International Folk Festival and in late 2015 he toured China. He was also the recipient of an Australia Council grant enabling him to study with mentor, Pepe Justicia, in Spain, where he spent the five years. Damian has completed a Masters degree from Macquarie University in Music Improvisation.

Sydney music critic, John Shand, describes Damian Wright as “a brilliant flamenco guitarist… what a captivating solo player he is on his own "In Time", and elsewhere his articulation of complex lines was fluid and dripping with conviction”.
