Mamás Bravas

Performing stories from our past, inspiring hope for our future 


Our Story

Made in Melbourne

Celebrating Australia’s best Folk and Early Music performers; 

exploring Chamber Music, Song and Dance, in a retrospective journey through the historic Spanish Empire

What's in a name?

Our inspiration comes from the visionary, entrepreneurial women who ran the theatre companies of eighteenth-century Spain. By their example, we feel empowered to lead an ensemble of this kind, melding their stories with our hopes for the future
