De fuego is a sensational guitar duo, playing energetic instrumental flamenco and rumba-based music. From different backgrounds, Edina Balczo is a Hungarian self-taught guitarist, but became extremly popular on Youtube and Davide Lufrano Chaves is Italian/Costa Rican and studied classical guitar at the Conservatorio Puccini gaining his Masters Degree in Music. At the beginning of 2010 the musical paths of these two talented musicians crossed in London.
They have come a long way since these humble beginnings when they were buskers in different markets across London. During the second summer since playing together De Fuego have performed at various UK festivals (Glastonbury festival, Secret Garden party, Cosmofestival, Small world festival etc) and in famous clubs, including Hootananny and Ronnie Scotts. They were also invited to Sziget in Hungary, one of the biggest music festivals in Europe.
In their music you can clearly hear their passion and virtuosity and with their spectacular percussion guitar techniques only with two guitars they make the people dance.On the 13th of January, 2012 they published their very first album, “Bluebird”, which is now available to order from their website or to download through CD baby.
