Daniel Volovets is a guitarist, composer, arranger, and instructor specializing in classical, flamenco, Latin American, and jazz music. Although born in the United States, his music is informed first and foremost by his Russian heritage. He was raised in a household of almost constantly reverberating musical notes — passionate and melancholy melodies of Russian and Ukrainian folklore, gently swaying Brazilian rhythms intermingled with the nearly-untranslatable sentiment of saudade, fiery strumming of flamenco masters, soulful and oft mournful fado, and wistful yet playful chansons of French bards, just to name a few.
Daniel began his studies at the age of 7 with the renowned Russian classical guitarist Anatoly Shapiro and subsequently also studied with classical/flamenco guitarist Tony Hauser and the legendary flamenco guitarist “El Payo” Humberto Wilkes. Daniel is a prolific performer, giving concerts regularly throughout the Twin Cities at a wide range of venues
Daniel graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a B.S. in Neuroscience and the University of Minnesota Medical School with an M.D. He aspires to balance careers in medicine and music.
