Q&A with Daniel
- How old were you when you decided to be a musician and what led you the instrument(s) you now play? I have been singing since I was a child and more officially since I joined the church chorus when I was 10. I don’t play any instrument, my voice is my instrument.
- When you’re not rehearsing/performing/teaching, where are you most likely to be? Working as an Financial Controller which is my other profession, I am a CPA Accountant
- After you finish a concert, what is the first drink you want to have in your hand? Champaign/Prosseco or red wine.
- If there weren’t external factors involved, how long do you think a concert should go for? It depends of the style of music but for the perfect concert length is between 1 and 2 hours, no more.
- When should we clap? Clap at the end of the songs that move you.
- What is the story behind your debut album El Amor? My Album El Amor was inspired by all the songs from my childhood. I was raised in Venezuela and my Spanish grandmother always had romantic Mediterranean songs playing in the background, most of the songs in the album are of that style. I had a need to sing all those romantic songs from my childhood but in my own style.
- What do you love about Bondi? The beach, the people, the style, the food and the sense that in Bondi I can be whoever I want to be!
