Graduated with honors in Castilla y León Conservatory under the tutelage of great pianist Sophia Hasse, Daniel learns jazz from master Horacio Icasto. Later on, he is granted with a full scholarship to study in Berklee College of Music in Boston. There he expands his concepts in jazz and improvisation under guidance and good advise of great masters like Danilo Pérez, John Patitucci, Dave Santoro, Johanne Brackeen or Ray Santisi among others. He is awarded with the "Best Jazz Performance Award" in 2011 at Berklee and invited by Danilo Pérez to present his unique blending of jazz and Spanish music in Panama International Jazz Festival, where he receives praise from reviews and audience. It is Danilo Pérez who encourages Daniel to use the two closest-to-his-heart musical worlds: Spanish folk, wich he always listened to at home since childhood, and jazz, to wich he always felt a natural inclination, and investigate how this two different styles can be merged to a deeper level beyond the apparent.

With this solid knowledge, the idea for making "alba", Daniel´s first release as a leader,  has been that of starting from scratch and try to redefine the concept of fusion between traditional music and jazz. The result is this music full of honesty. To give it life, Daniel has counted on great artists and friends like Jorge Pardo, Alain Pérez, Ariel Brínguez, Michael Olivera, Mariola Membrives, Reinier Elizarde "El Negrón", Alejandro Vega, Jorge Pérez or Maureen Choi among others. In this work, the borders between jazz, flamenco and traditional Spanish music become completely blurred and the result is a music in where it is not clear where one of them starts and the other ends. With improvisation as a connecting thread and an eye always looking at the roots and essence of these huge musical universes, with the goal of trying to express what cannot be said with words.
