Newly formed ensemble Mamás Bravas’ performance of ¡VENGA! an enchanting selection of 18th Century Spanish vocal music is now available to stream free till 4 June, 2023.

Performed online for the Bloomington Early Music Festival in Indiana, USA, in May. The concert is a journey through the extremely rare Zarzuela Antigua repertoire of Spain, much of which was lost to fires in the mid-1700’s. The only Australian representatives in the festival, Mamas Bravas is the brainchild of mezzo-soprano and creative producer Allegra Giagu. The program of Spanish song was part of the Shepparton Festival 2023 and their scintillating performance of the music of Spain was streamed nationally on Australian Digital Concert Hall (ADCH).

The ensemble: Allegra Giagu – Voice & Castanets/ Tim Willis – Baroque Violin/ Adam Masters – Baroque Oboe/ Hannah Lane – Baroque Harp/Samantha Cohen – Theorbo and Baroque Guitar/Laura Vaughan – Viola da Gamba/Jess Ciampa – Percussion
