Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
As the Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company, this is our second year in the Edinburgh Fringe, but as individual artists, we have all been involved in the festival for many years; ranging between 4 and 16 years!
Daniel came to perform as a Flamenco Guitarist in the Edinburgh Fringe of 2015…and the rest is history! During that month he met myself, a Flamenco dancer, as well as incredible Flamenco singers Inma Montero and Danielo Olivera.
From there we all began working together in various projects, including the annual Fringe Festival.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
Since last year’s festival, we have been continuing our tour of the UK.
In 2019 so far we have performed in theatres in Surrey and Brighton as well as the prestigious Royal Conservatoire of Birmingham’s guitar festival, playing alongside amazing artists such as David Russell and Miloš Karadaglic.
In June we are taking our production to Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre and we have been invited back for a second year running to Ludlow’s Fringe Festival.
Tell us about your show.
‘Art of Believing’ was written and composed by Daniel himself and premiered in Edinburgh’s Royal Lyceum Theatre. The company has since gone on to perform in theatres and festivals across some of the most fantastic cities in the UK…and counting!
Our Flamenco Company consists of truly wonderful musicians who not only have the raw talent but an exceptional passion for what they do. Daniel is joined on stage by Flamenco singers, percussionists, guitarists, a dancer and a violinist which together produce real authentic Flamenco music and dance from the heart.
Don’t miss this fantastic show, whether you are new to Flamenco or are a true aficionado, we promise you a beautiful trip to Andalucia…ole!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
