Daniel Akiva is a composer, performer, and educator whose performances on guitar and lute have earned international acclaim. Mr. Akiva graduated from the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem in 1981, where he studied classical guitar with Haim Asulin and composition with Haim Alexander. In 1987 he completed his studies of lute with Jonathan Rubin and composition with Jean Ballisa at the Geneva Conservatorium in Switzerland. In 1986 he founded the Music Department at the WIZO High School for the Arts in Haifa which he headed for over thirty years. As part of his work at WIZO High School, he developed a method for teaching free improvisation which has been incorporated into the music program at the school. He also served as the Artistic Director of the Guitar Gems Festival from 2006-2018.

Mr. Akiva has performed in concerts as a guitarist and lutenist and given master classes in Israel, Europe, Russia, the United States, and Latin America. Daniel Akiva’s compositional output includes works for solo instruments, chamber ensembles, choir, voice and guitar, piano, and chamber orchestra. His works have been recorded on twelve CDs, the latest of which, Malchut, was issued by OR-TAV in 2014. Akiva's work Psalms for guitar solo was awarded the ACUM prize for composition in 1990, and his string quartet Ciclos was awarded the ACUM prize for composition in 2002. In 2006 his CD Hope, recorded with Laurel Zucker (flute) and Ronit Widmann-Levy (soprano) was awarded the Amazon prize. In 2017 Akiva was awarded the Prime Minister's Prize for composers in Israel.

A native of Haifa whose family has lived in Israel for over five hundred years, he was steeped in the Sephardic (Jewish-Spanish) tradition from his youth. A large part of his oeuvre has been devoted to a dialogue with the music of the Sephardic Jews. Daniel Akiva has also maintained a creative dialogue throughout the years with poets and writers Amnon Shemesh, Rivka Miriam, and Avner Perez.
