An innovative artist praised internationally for his "...warm, virtuostic playing" and "exceptional artistic talent", Daniel Salazar has appeared in many prestigious venues, including Liechtenstein Palace in Prague, the Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, Wienawski Hall in Poznan, the Artist's Palace in Vilnius, the Minsk Academy of Music, the Museum of Fine Arts in Malta, the Instituto de Bellas Artes in Morelia, Mexico and many others. He has participated in numerous festivals, including the Curso Internacional de Interpretacion Musical and the Festival Internacional de Guitarra, both in Spain, as well as the Feria de la Guitarra in Mexico.
Having had the distinction of being selected, from a nationwide search, as United States Artistic Ambassador, Daniel has toured Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, where his playing has been enjoyed by international audiences through performances on television and radio in ten countries. Highlights of his recent concert seasons include performances at the prestigious American Academy in Rome and the Manoel Theatre in Malta.
His best-selling debut Compact Disc, "Malagueña!" was released in 1996 and features the premiere recording of Lecuona's universally famous music of the same name, especially arranged for guitar and orchestra.
Daniel, who has studied guitar with the some world's foremost classical masters, has also been influenced by various other styles, including traditional and popular Latin American music, Spanish flamenco and even American Rock. Marking an exciting new phase in his career, his latest project now brings many of these elements together in the self- titled recording, "Daniel Salazar". In his continued effort to expand the guitar's repertoire, Daniel Salazar has developed a new musical style that features the classical guitar combined with an ensemble of guitars, bass, keyboards, Latin percussion and orchestral instruments, resulting in a refreshingly original contemporary sound.
