Composer and Flamenco guitarist Daniel Martinez brings his unique musical production ‘Art of Believing’ to the city of Manchester. Straight from the heart of Andalucía, the audience will enjoy a rich variety of Flamenco styles; from the intense emotion of a 'Seguiriya' to the joyful sounds of an ‘Alegria’. The show will host an exceptional group of musicians; Flamenco singers, guitarists, percussionists, a base player, a dancer and a violinist, joining Daniel in a must-see powerful Flamenco performance bursting with passion and authenticity.
‘Art of Believing’ came to life in 2017 when Daniel decided to create a production that would represent his life as an artist and Flamenco guitarist so far.
“This project is a musical representation of my humble beginnings; from a young boy learning to play the guitar whilst spending tireless hours perfecting the art of Flamenco, to my adult life as a composer and musician here in the UK - a country which has shown me great affection and taken me in with open arms since my arrival four years ago. It is a true honour to bring my theatre production to a vibrant city like Manchester, a place bursting with incredible talent and musical diversity”.
‘Art of Believing’ debuted in Edinburgh´s Royal Lyceum Theatre in October 2017 and, due to the show’s sell-out and tremendous success; the Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company is currently touring some of the UK’s biggest cities, guitar and arts festivals (Brighton, Edinburgh, Surrey, Birmingham, Ludlow, Liverpool, Cardiff).
Presenting this production in Manchester’s Dancehouse is yet another fantastic tour location for Daniel’s Flamenco Company.
“Since the launch late 2017, Manchester has been one of the cities I’ve been really excited to bring my production to. When we started planning our concert dates for 2020, Manchester was an absolute must” says Daniel.
Daniel graduated as a fully licensed musician from Cordoba’s Conservatoire of Music after 14 years of study and, in 2015, moved to the UK. Over the last four years Daniel has been involved in many projects with musicians across the UK whilst composing and creating his own music and productions. ‘Art of Believing’ promises to be a memorable performance, bringing to Manchester a taste of Pure Flamenco and outstanding musicianship. Vibrant and exciting, this is an unmissable Flamenco experience.
