David Matyas

For the past thirteen years, David has been studying flamenco guitar, traveling regularly to Spain to further his talents. In the summer of 2009 supported by a grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, David traveled to Montreal and studied extensively with Myriam Allard's flamenco company La Otra Orilla and its principal guitarist, Kraig Adams. He has also studied flamenco guitar with renowned Calgary-based flamenco guitarist Peter Knight.

David has performed flamenco guitar professionally for the last nine years. He has frequently accompanied flamenco dance classes at the School of Alberta Ballet for Claudia Carolina, a leading Canadian flamenco dance teacher. David has performed recently with prominent Canadian flamenco dancers in the Calgary flamenco productions Cross-over and From Spain to Calgary via Montreal, Flamenco y Olé and Flamenco - Song, Dance, Music, Stories in Edmonton and Vida in Saskatoon. He currently performs regularly with the Salero Caló flamenco group at Calgary’s Beat Niq Jazz and Social Club.
