UPDATE: Even though we reached our goal, you can still contribute so we can afford a good publicist! It is very important when you produce a CD, so our music can be in the media and go worldwide! Also here it is cheaper to get tickets to our CD launch.

Hola amigos,

We are De fuego and we are raising funds to record our second album.

De Fuego is a sensational guitar duo, playing energetic instrumental flamenco and rumba-based music who gained reputation in the UK summer festivals with their upbeat passionate sound and percussive guitar techniques. In 2014 they performed 17 festivals. Festivals included Glastonbury, Secret Garden party, Sziget fesztival (HU), Shambala.

They released their first album Bluebird on the 13th of January 2012 and they did an European Tour on the early autumn of this year. They had an album review in Songlines magazine 2014 Jan/Feb issue.

Lets see a little background!

It was a very difficult year for me. I started this project about 4 years ago when I met this amazing guitarist in a concert of a friend of mine and we decided to test if we can play together. It was working from the very first moment. And we composed music, went busking, and started performing in English festivals. By the second summer we were playing like 10 festivals in the summer and getting very tight together, and published our very first album in 2012. His name was Davide Lufrano Chaves, he was my best friend, my music, my partner. He passed away at the age 30 in multiple myeloma, blood cancer in December 2013.

When he died I stopped this for a while as I just simply did not know what to do, and I needed to get better. I was walking the Camino de Santiago more then 800km long wallk and started to feel better and I had a lot of time there to think about my music, my future.

This project really made me happy and I enjoyed every single minute of it, I am sure he would not want either the music to die, so I must carry on. Of course he is always in my mind and he will be missed forever. With my project I officially support myeloma UK cancer charity.

This is my link where I raise money for that charity: https://www.justgiving.com/Edina-Balczo

This was us:

I will name the new album Davide, as he was a very important person in my life who greatly infuenced my music too.

Luckily recently I met this amazing guitarist Mark Rodriguez from Spain and we create something similar, but different in a way and we compose new music again.

Our goals

Our goal is to raise at least 2000 pounds, so we can do the recording, mixing, editing, artwork for the CD, printing it and also distributing it online, and also organise a nice CD launch. If we raise more money we would like to pay for a publicist and radio plugger as well so our music will go worldwide more.

For your information, all the music in the video and the CD that we show is from the first CD.

All of the songs are written and we are touring around a lot to play it for you guys, now we just need your help to get this done. Please pledge now for us!

Risks and challenges

When the project is successfully founded the hard work starts, practicing, recording, organizing everything, but should be a lot of fun!
