Daniel García Diego Sextet

Daniel García Diego is one of the most exciting Spanish jazz pianists of the moment, who is conquering jazz stages worldwide. 'Jazz and flamenco are brothers,' says Daniel. And he shows this on the acclaimed albums Travesuras and Vía de la Plata . In his expressive style, rhythmic intensity goes hand in hand with melodic richness and harmonic finesse. With the project The Shape of Fire (La Forma del Fuego) he breaks new musical ground. He puts together a sextet of top musicians with diverse musical backgrounds, from the Netherlands to Iran and from Austria to Armenia - and Spain of course! “ The Shape of Fire refers to the soul, energy or fire that glows at the core of all music that aims to convey human emotions and life experiences ,” says Diego. “ Music has the power to connect with the inner self and transform it into art. Wherever it comes from or who makes it, whether it takes the form of flamenco, jazz, contemporary music or Armenian folk songs: music arises from a need to express the unfathomable. ” Daniel García Diego (Salamanca, 1983) studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and was taught by the Panamanian Grammy winner Danilo Pérez, who achieved world fame as a pianist with Wayne Shorter. Pérez became his mentor and played an important role in his development. Daniel made his debut with his trio in the Netherlands during the online edition of the VIII Flamenco Biennale 2021. The concert in LantarenVenster is part of Flamenco Biennale Intermezzo 2024. Line-up: Daniel García Diego - piano, compositions, artistic direction, piano Delaram Kafashzadeh - vocals Mario Rom - trumpet Reinier Baas - guitar Arin Keshishi - bass guitar Shayan Fathi - drums/percussion
