When Cuban guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas first heard the music of fellow countryman Eduardo Martín he felt euphoric. Martín’s style has an expansive sense of freedom that taps into pre Columbus traditions, jazz, flamenco, pop, Afro and traditional Cuban. The guitar is his favoured instrument to mirror the melodic and rhythmic intricacies of the Americas’ cultural diversity.

Before moving to England, Dickinson Cárdenas took lessons with Martín and their friendship, idiosyncratic empathy and mutual respect have since transformed into a vehicle that connects, incorporates and juxtaposes their different generations, their musical ideas and ultimately the spiritual journey that drives this unique duo.

This recital is an introduction to of some of Eduardo Martín’s most alluring works for two guitars, where rock merges with sones montunos; old Yoruba chants, feel-good rumbas, funk-boleros, new age tunes and cinematic pieces sit alongside Cuban tumbaos with slap bass.
