Biography of Daniel Menjívar

Daniel Menjívar playing Baby Bass

Daniel Menjívar is an accomplished bassist and arranger with an exceptional reputation of professionalism. His performances before live audiences and in numerous studios early on in his career won him recognition as one of the most promising young bass players in Canada.

Daniel’s bass playing sounds more and more promising as time goes by… — Luis Orbegoso, Toronto-based Percussionist.

Since 1992, Daniel has been playing professionally throughout North America where his multifarious experiences have helped to shape his distinguished sound and have established him with a solid foundation in many diverse styles of music. At the same time, his dedication to Latin genres and their influence on his music is evident in his unwavering sense of time and rhythmic precision.

…his sense of time is very precise; his bass lines are both sweet and strong at the same time… — Feliciano Arango, NG La Banda.

Toronto bandleader Igor Babich states, Daniel is an intelligent player, he easily adapts to a variety of styles; when I was looking for a bass player for my Jazz quartet, Daniel was a natural choice… Daniel’s unique ability to fluidly adapt, coupled with his vast knowledge and expertise in world genres have afforded him the opportunity to collaborate with many well-known, respected artists including Grammy recipient and Rumba All-Star Israel “Toto” Berriel (formerly of Los Muñequitos de Matanzas); Grammy Academy member and world-renowned composer Luis Emilio Ríos; Juno award winner Hilario Durán; Juno award winner Manuel Jara of Oscar Lopez’ band; Cuban salsa star Rojitas; and countless others.

Daniel Menjívar playing Congas

Daniel was born into a musical family with a long heritage of guitar players. His family’s musical traditions were passed down to him since the early age of five when he began his musical studies. After seven years of intense rhythmic and harmonic studies he started to experiment on different instruments including drums, congas, percussion, vocals, clarinet and bass. His love for the electric bass was undeniably strong, but even while his bass studies intensified, he continued simultaneous studies on the guitar. Eventually, his proficiency on the electric bass far exceeded his guitar abilities, but even today, Daniel continues to play the guitar as well as congas, güiro and other percussion instruments.

In addition to studying Jazz and contemporary music at the reputable Humber College in Toronto, Canada (while focusing on composing and arranging), Daniel embarked on his own private studies and research into the roots and development of Afro-Cuban and traditional Latin American music.

…his background in Latin and Jazz music runs deep… He has a conscientious approach to learning and seeks out opportunities to learn and grow as a player and as a person.Peter Robinson Chance Devlin, Vancouver-based Bandleader.

Daniel Menjívar playing Electric Bass

Daniel has had the good fortune of studying with various internationally acclaimed musicians including Cuban bass player Feliciano Arango of NG la Banda “The Father of Timba”; New York session bassist John Benitez; and Daniel’s mentor, the highly sought, Tokyo-based Dale James, who is regarded as one of the greatest bassists alive today. Daniel’s extensive knowledge of music theory, as well as his modern approach to electric bass technique have established him with his own roster of aspiring students.

Bass Tracks by Daniel Menjívar

Daniel Menjívar has been playing music professionally throughout North America since 1992 and though Latin music runs through his veins, he’s been fortunate to have had the opportunity to play a wide spectrum of genres like Jazz, Funk, African, Brazilian, Folk, Rock, etc.

…I met Daniel at a recording session at the CBC Glen Gould Studios with Cassava Latin Rhythms. I was looking for a bass player for my Jazz quartet and Daniel was a natural choice. Daniel is an intelligent player, he easily adapts to a variety of styles and has a very easy-going personality; it is a pleasure to work with him. — Igor Babich, Toronto-based Bandleader

Nowadays, virtual recording sessions are becoming more common thanks to modern advancements in recording technology intersecting with the ubiquity of the internet and online payments. While some people might feel uncomfortable with technology, for someone like Daniel with years of experience recording music and a natural inclination to all things tech, this is a very exciting time! Daniel’s experience, expertise and solid communication skills allow him to work with a ton of interesting people from around the world.

…our band thinks your music arrangements are amazing. We’re very happy with the horns harmony… — Erling Moises García, Calgary-based Bandleader

Daniel Correcting Sheet Music

Daniel’s formal education in composing and arranging was acquired while studying Jazz and contemporary music at Humber College in Toronto, Canada, but perhaps more significantly, he’s been actively studying Afro-Cuban and traditional Latin American music his entire life.
