The Focus & Aim Behind our Project

As musicians, artists & performers, we rely heavily on our weekly, monthly and yearly shows, concerts & festivals. Therefore after the news that our beloved Fringe Festival had been cancelled this year, we were absolutely thrilled when the Edinburgh Fringe Society & Crowdfunder launched FringeMakers; a digital version of the Edinburgh Festival which not only provides audiences with the next best thing this August (concerts via live stream) but positively encourages and supports Fringe artists in raising vital funds which they depend on in the absence of a Fringe this year.

The Project - Traditional Flamenco Guitar

When the Fringe Society contacted us about FringeMakers our first instinct was to put on the exact same concert we had planned for this year...and we have decided to do just that! We can't think of a better way to form a part of this exciting alternative to the festival.

Through the works of legendary flamenco maestros such as Sabicas, Moraito, Paco Serrano, Paco de Lucia & Vicente Amigo (amongst many others), our intimate traditional flamenco guitar concert will take you on a journey through the different eras of flamenco. Through stunning guitar playing, you'll be sure to be transported straight to the heart of Andalucia from the comfort of your own living room! 

After winning the Herald Angel Award in last year's festival for our production ‘Art of Believing’, we are returning with another concert full of the rich diversity flamenco is known and loved for.

Additional Rewards

As well as our live concerts, we will also be offering other items/experiences that we would usually offer during the Fringe such as: flamenco guitar lessons, CDs and DVDs. There will also be some past performances and personalised messages you can enjoy.

Who We Are

Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company
Founded in 2017, DMFC is still young, but fiercely working hard to make its name in the UK. First production 'Art of Believing' has been a roaring success so far but extremely hard work. Everything we do is self-funded; from the music making itself, to the marketing, the hiring of theatres, the sound equipment, travel and accommodation for our artists...the list goes on. BUT we love every second of it and work on our second production has now started. Stay up to date with everything we do: www.danielmartinezflamenco.com

Daniel Martinez
Professional flamenco guitarist Daniel became a fully licensed flamenco musician in the Royal Conservatoire of his home city Cordoba, Spain. In 2015, after a full run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, he fell in love with Scotland and decided to move to the city of Edinburgh permanently! Since then, he's formed his own company, Daniel Martinez Flamenco, his own guitar school and has been touring the UK with his production and team of incredible professional flamenco artists.

Gabriela Pouso
Manager of the Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company and flamenco dancer Gabriela has trained with many different teachers and schools both here and in Spain. She has worked within the UK flamenco scene for many years, performing in various flamenco tablaos and shows, arts festivals and theatres across the country.
