Maria 'LA Chacha' Bermudez is a world-renowned artist. She has exposed audiences across the world to the unique style and sound of Jerez de la Frontera, Spain — recognized as the birthplace of Flamenco — and the city where Maria has resided for many years. Her critically acclaimed performances have graced venues such as the Hollywood Bowl, Lope de Vega in Sevilla, Lincoln Center in New York, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

For Maria, a native ‘Californiana’, working with the talent of Santa Barbara is a joy. She is grateful to be part of the Santa Barbara community and wishes all of you a warm “Viva La Fiesta!”
