Edina Balczó is a UK based guitarist, composer, performer, educator who is originally Hungarian and lived there most of her life, but since 2008 she has been living in East London.
She was a self taught guitarist for many years, but she had some private lessons from two guitarists for half a year separately: Andras Varga (flamenco) and Adrien Miller (jazz). Because of being self taught for such a long time she developed her own original style, which is a mixture of flamenco, classical, percussion and spanish jazz.
She became extremely popular on youtube after the flamenco performances and guitar lessons. She has more than 5 millions video views and her channel got several honours (most subscribed, most viewed). From 2009 January she became a Youtube partner. Because of the popularity achieved there she got an endorsement from GuitarPro, the tablature editor program and she is among their international artists.
At the moment her projects are:
De fuego guitar duo with Davide Lufrano Chaves for live performances, gigs and festivals in the UK. They have already played some of the top clubs in London, including Ronnie Scott's and Hootananny. In 2011 they are also invited some of the biggest festivals in UK, like Glastonbury festival, Secret garden party and also to Sziget festival in Hungary.
Movie soundtrack with Sarvari G, they are now composing the entire music of a short movie Blue Balloons (2011, I am film). Her music also appeared in a documentary film, called A technicolor dream (2008, Eagle Vision).
