Daniel Casares, was born with an original talent and this is demonstrated by his guitar, which sounds original, distinct, with a proper personality of its own, reflecting that internal fury, which unleashes powerfully on his strings.
Daniel Casares’ professional career is premature. With only 13 years old, he participates in the recording of the group album, “A la Guitarra de Estepona”.
At the age of 16 he was awarded with the prestigious Bordón minero de La Unión, becoming the youngest guitarist getting that award. In addition, he won the national guitar prize of Jaén and opened the path for him to record his first album “Duende Flamenco” that same year, although it would not be published until 1999, when he was 19 years old.
His musical intimacy is intimately linked to “Maestro Juanito Valderrama”; the album “Don Juan” recorded live at the Festival Flamenco de La Unión (Murcia) is proof of this.
The lyric world has also been able to enjoy Daniel Casares, since mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli asked him to accompany him, as a guest artist, on his European tour, a tribute to María Malibrán.
