INDIALUCIA - (2005)

The album expresses both the human and musical fusion of these cultures, which could have had a common ancestor. Improvisation and rhythm are the common elements in both styles and are essential to the continued existence of this music. The recordings were made between 1999 and 2004 mostly in India and Spain. Many great artists from the two continents performed. This album is the result of the years of work, which for the first time demonstrates the common elements of flamenco and its Indian roots fused into one art form.

ACATAO - (2016)

ACATAO - (2016)

Their second album, Acatao (‘reunited’ in Caló, the old language of Iberian Gypsies), is a continuation of this innovative project on a world scale, a space for intermingling of musical styles and instruments, a place of new musical encounters, never seen so far. This music introduces the listener to the musical culture of southern Spain and different regions of India. The album offers entirely acoustic sound, many well-known virtuosos of ethnical instruments and vocalists from both continents, improvisation and – most of all – the energy of the Spanish flamenco and the energy of the mystic India.

Press reviews

The craftsmanship that is available only for privileged, alchemists of sound. It's something more than world music, it is the music of the spheres. Spirit of India and Andalusia hovering above the firmament, filled with quality and beauty of the infinite colors. Where life becomes a passion ... and sound become its essence.

Maciej Szajkowski

Polish Radio
For its ambition and achievement the stand-out disc has got to be Michal Czachowski's Acatao. He is a formidable flamenco guitarist and has assembled a superb team. This is a very impressive album, for the quality of its music, for bringing together flamenco music and Indian music and for its artwork. An impressive achievement.

ndialucía - a solid study of the musical structures of these two great musical worlds. It is a rigorous and beautiful work, that makes us travel, which transports us and trills us.

You listen it at your own risk – after this album world of music will never be the same anymore.

Wojciech Ossowski

Polish Radio
The album Indialucia was a totally astonishing surprise for me. Whereas the flamenco productions in Spain move around in the same point with no exit, transforming this art according to predictable formulae, the ingenuity of this project was like a blast of sound freshness for my ears which were permeated with already exhausted ideas of project realized so far.

Norberto Torres Cortes

El Olivo
The combination of perfect flamenco guitar flourishes and precise tabla beats produces a sound that is abundant with festive celebration and an example of human accomplishment. Every recorded note and beat on this album is a portal to some source bigger than ourselves.

It's one thing to say that music has no borders. But musicians from Poland, Spain and India fusing Flamenco and Indian Classical together...now that just takes the aforementioned statement to a whole new level. I am referring to a phenomenal musical entity which goes by the name of Indialucia, which has intrigued and fascinated me for over a year.
