Maria Bermudez 'Chicana Gypsy'
One of the most versatile flamenco artists in world music today
Chicana Gypsy draws on her rich Mexican-American heritage and her immersion in the Gypsy culture of Andalucia. With her elegant and jazz flavored voice
combined with her earthy and sensual Flamenco dancing, she blends cultures and artforms seamlessly into a sound and style uniquely her own.
Her greatest influences have been the likes of Santana, Sade, Billie Holiday and the great Flamenco legends.
Her extensive career has inspired the award winning documentary film, “Streets of Flamenco” which follows Maria’s journey from the barrios of East Los Angeles, to the Gypsy barrios of the Flamenco World.
“The Secret is Soul.......Add Chicana Gypsy Project to the honorable list of Musicians Without Borders. Their explosive results will reverberate for a long time.” Lucid Culture, NY
“It is clear that there is an affinity here for all music that has to do with the human condition. It is well suited for the ears of a nation that celebrates diversity”.......
