This February, the award-winning Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company presents its long-awaited 2nd production Andalucia, a blend of flamenco accompanied by a chamber orchestra.
This concert is a musical representation of the 8 regions of Andalucia – Cordoba, Sevilla, Cadiz, Malaga, Jaen, Granada, Huelva and Almeria – that make up their autonomous community in the South of Spain, the birthplace of flamenco as well as of Martinez himself.
Each region has their own distinct take on the very many diverse styles that make up flamenco and these will be presented to the audience through Daniel’s guitar and accompanied by an array of flamenco musicians, singers, a chamber orchestra ensemble and flamenco dance.
All of the music for Andalucia, including the full chamber orchestra, has been written and composed by Daniel, making this production a significant next step in this young musician’s career.
Daniel Martinez is a Spanish flamenco guitarist and composer from Cordoba, who has been based in Scotland since 2015. His first production Art of Believing won the Herald Angel Award in 2019’s Edinburgh International Festival and has been captivating audiences since its premier in October 2017.
