Mamás Bravas

 Australian made, Iberian inspired. 


Our Story

Made in Melbourne

Bursting with distinctly Iberian flavours, Mamás Bravas is the only Australian-made female driven ensemble dedicated to exploring Art Music of Spanish origin. We bring the enticing energy of Iberian music to the Concert Hall stage.

What's in a name?

Our ensemble is inspired by the visionary, entrepreneurial women who directed music-theatre companies in eighteenth-century Spain. Our interpretations shine light on a richly woven tapestry of stories and music throughout history.
