DANIEL CASARES

Daniel is a slave of his art. A willing one.

A perfectionist who lives in a constant state of frustration, because he is never satisfied with his work. A virtuoso with an impeccable technique, his greatest fear is not to transmit emotion; “If you don’t have emotion, you have nothing.”

Frustration, fear, discipline, sacrifice and suffering... Daniel doesn’t take the easy road.

Yet he seems content. He fell hopelessly in love with the guitar at the age of 13, not quite knowing why, and since then his life has been a continuous struggle to master the instrument. Once again, he has chosen the difficult path, opting for both the classical and the flamenco guitar.

“Behind every artist there is fear and darkness” he says, but what I see is a bright light in his eyes... a passionate man who clearly found his vocation. A happy slave.
