Ahmed Dickinson Cardenas & Eduardo Martin - "The Bridge", Classical Guitar Duo

Eduardo is one of the most prominent contemporary guitar composers and he has written for guitar in various combinations from duos to guitar orchestra. He has written for theatre plays and for cinema.

Award winning London-based Cuban guitarist, Ahmed Dickinson Cardenas, a former student of Eduardo Martin is one of the finest performers of the Cuban classical guitar school. Over the last 10 years, Ahmed has established a successful career in the UK, whilst maintaining a performance profile and strong links with Cuba. He has performed at prestigious venues across the U.K. and Europe.

"The Bridge" is a new album by Eduardo and Ahmed which is a compilation of some of Eduardo’s most alluring works for two guitars, where rock merges with son montunos; old Yoruba chants, feel-good rumbas, funk- boleros, new age tunes and cinematic pieces sit alongside Cuban tumbaos with slap bass. It is is a wondrous display of fluidity, a continuous study of the Latin guitar, past and present.

The mixture of the virtuosity and the emotional and soothing quality of the works they perform characterizes Eduardo Martín and Ahmed Dickinson’s concerts. The audience is captivated from their first note to the last by their command over the instrument and the often-intricate instrumental pieces. The music played during each concert is a very meticulous selection of works by Eduardo Martín.
