Maria Bermudez resides in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, the “cradle” of flamenco, where she has worked with some of the foremost artists in this important city in Andalucia, such as Familia Agujetas, Nano de Jerez, Capullo, Rancapino, Pansequito, Niño Jero, Tomasito, and many, many others. Her training has been with some of the most renowned masters in Spain, including Angelita Vargas, Ciro, La Tati, El Guito, and Farruco, who have all inspired her style to be recognized internationally, and, most importantly, to be accepted artistically in a country not her own, a most difficult task in this particular art form.
Her outstanding and critically acclaimed performances include The Hollywood Bowl, The John Anson Ford Theater, The Fountain Theater, The Los Angeles Music Center, The Bilingual Foundation of the Arts in Los Angeles and The Joyce Theater in New York City. Internationally she has performed at the Teatro Palacio das Artes in Brazil, Peña Cernicalos, Los Gallos, and Teatro Lope de Vega in Spain as well as many other countries throughout the world such as Germany, Sweden and London. Maria’s dedication to flamenco continues to thrill audiences and to communicate the wide range of its emotions and beauty.
