Indialucia - an international musical project led by flamenco guitar player Miguel Czachowski; one of the first bands that have successfully combined the classical music of India with Flamenco, from Andalusia, giving concerts all over the world since 1999. The members of the project include many outstanding musicians from Poland, India, Italy and Spain.
Their concert repertoire expresses both the human and musical fusion of these cultures, making the audiences experience a stimulating blend of those extremely rich cultural traditions. Improvisation and rhythm are the common elements in both styles and are essential to their continued existence, keeping them alive and permeable to new influences. Additionally to the traditional elements of Indian and Flamenco music, the sound of Indialucia is enriched by jazz piano, bass guitar, flute and dance. In 2016 they started touring with classical orchestras, exploring a new dimension of symphonic music.
They released two award-winning albums, Indialucia and Acatao. Both of them received the award as second best album of the year by Polish Radio. The music was used as a soundtrack for the American movie The Boondock Saints II.
The group has performed in almost thirty countries, including most European countries, Asia, and North and South America. They performed in USA, Canada, Russia, Mexico, Colombia, Spain, France, Andorra, Italy, Germany, Austria, UK, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Luxemburg, Denmark, Holland, Finland, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Turkey, India and Singapore.
They have played and recorded with many renowned artists such as Jorge Pardo, Paquito González, L. Subramaniam, Purbayan Chatterjee, Domingo Patricio, Leszek Możdżer, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Kavita Krishnamurti and others.
