In 2009, he graduated at Manuel Castillo Music Conservatory in Seville under the direction of Gaëlle Solal and went on with his artistic education with Alen Garagic, Daekun Jang and José Luis Rodrigo. He has performed in different countries, as for example his presentation at the University of Yale (USA) or in the International Art Festival of Harare – HIFA (Zimbabwe), one of the most important cultural events in Africa. He completed his education at Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona) and nowadays he is the artistic director of “Música no Claustro” Festival, organized by Tui Cathedral.

 Work & Activities

Committed to the revival of Galician musical heritage, he presented “Guitarra Clásica Galega” in December 2012 with “Ouvirmos” and the support of the Galician Agency of Cultural Industries and the Secretaría Xeral de Cultura - Xunta de Galicia. “Guitarra Clásica Galega” makes a journey through the past, present and future of the instrument in our culture with the revival of unpublished works like “Pastoral” for guitar by Jesús Bal y Gay, the waltz collection “Violetas” by José Fernández Vide and the assignment of “Nocturnal (Bal y Gay)” to the composer Fernando Buide. According to Leopoldo Neri: "este crisol caleidoscópico de piezas para guitarra, tan espléndidamente interpretadas por el tudense Samuel Diz, nos desvela un íntimo y sensual espacio de la historia musical gallega y, a la vez, el vigor compositivo de nuestros días”.

 Other Interesting Aspects

In 2013, he was awarded the Critics Prize at the Palau de la Música Catalana.
In 2011, la Casa de la Provincia de Sevilla edited his research work about the figure and records of Juan Antonio Torres (National Music Prize, 1973) in the compilation record “Sonidos de una Juventud” and was awarded the Sevillian Song gold badge. In 2012, he directed and presented “On the Road” with the collaboration of the dancer Gisela Creus and the illustrator Álvaro Reinoso. This work was inspired in his experience during his stay in Puerto Rico.
