Traditional Flamenco Dance Shows Also Available!
Daniel Fríes is one of the premier flamenco guitarists in California, both as an accompanist for flamenco song and dance, and as a soloist. He has performed with many world class and local flamenco artists as La Tania, Andrés Marín, Cristo Cortés, and Manuel Gutierrez, Caminos Flamencos, Carola Zertuche, Arte y Compás, and Carolina Lugo's Brisas de España, for which he has been musical director. While in Italy, he performed with two of the country's top dancers, Juana Cala, and Maria Jose Soto Leon in venues from Venice to Milan to Sicily. While his playing style remains grounded in the roots of the traditional Spanish flamenco, he also explores new directions in musical composition as well as blending of elements from the various musical traditions around which he grew up in San Francisco; Indian, Middle Eastern, Latin American, and African. He has performed in venues ranging from San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, to venues in China and in India. He also directed the music for "Zambra Bailar," a company mixing flamenco with Middle Eastern music and belly dance. In 2002, he composed and directed the music for La Tania's ongoing project, "The Passage of The Muse." In 2003, Mr. Fríes took his band Funkiri to Sevilla, Spain. More recently, he has pursued collaborations with a wider range of musicians, including the outstanding persian singer Hamed Nikpay, with whom he produced Mr. Nikpay's 2008 release and subsequent tour "All is Calm." Mr. Fríes has studied in Spain with several flamenco guitar masters, including Manolo Sanlucar, Paco Peña, and Jose Luis Rodriguez. He has also studied Indian Classical music under Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, and Ghanain drumming with C.K. Ladezkpo, and has B.A. in Music from U.C. Berkeley.

Wedding Cocktail Hour
in Calistoga, CA
"I hired Daniel Fries and Trio Paz for the ceremony and cocktail hour of my wedding. They absolutely exceeded my expectations in every way. Daniel was extremely creative, professional and helpful in the months leading up to the wedding, so I was completely confident in them and didn't have to worry. They did a breathtaking Spanish guitar adaptation of a popular song for my bridal march song. The day of the wedding they were early, unobtrusive, friendly and professional. Their music was a hit - many positive comments from guests. I definitely recommend them to anyone for any event."

Cinco De Mayo Party
in Pleasanton, CA
"Daniel and his guys added so much to our party. They were really nice and so much fun! Several people who attended have told us how much they enjoyed them. Their Latin style music was beautiful and so unique, not what I had heard from other groups. They were incredibly professional, Daniel's communication was excellent, he kept up with me several days ahead and even the morning of our party to make sure we were synchronized on the details. I highly recommend them and would not hesitate hiring them for another function."
