Daniel was born on the 19th of July 1993 in Cordoba, Spain and started his flamenco guitar studies at the age of 7 in the Royal Conservatoire of Music of the same city. 

In 2015, having worked in many of Cordoba’s tablaos and flamenco festivals, he completed his 14 years of study as a fully licensed musician and was the first student to obtain the title in Elementary Grade, Professional Grade and Licensed Grade since the official grading system had begun. That same year he moved to the UK to work as a flamenco guitar soloist, for different companies and artists as well as collaborating in various musical projects and festivals.

In 2017, he founded his own company, the Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company, and debuted his first production Art of Believing, which has gone on to receive exceptional press and audience reviews, win awards and grace the stages of many theatres, guitar and arts festivals across the country.

As well as a composer and musician, Daniel is also a licensed flamenco guitar teacher. After operating a successful guitar school in Cordoba for over 5 years, he opened his Edinburgh based school where he offers students of all ages and levels classes face to face or via Skype/Zoom, providing students over 15 years teaching experience.

Daniel’s second production Andalucia premiered in Scotland’s only 5 star concert hall, Edinburgh’s stunning Usher Hall, to a sold out audience of over 2,000 people in February 2023. The Andalucia UK Tour starts in January 2024 – get your tickets here!
