'Sones y flores': Eduardo Martín & Ahmed Dickinson
When Cuban guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas first heard the music of fellow countryman Eduardo Martín he felt euphoric. Martíns style has an expansive sense of freedom that taps into pre-Columbian traditions, jazz, flamenco, pop, Afro and traditional Cuban music. 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 Eduardo, 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 project.
This recital is an introduction to of some of Eduardos 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 slapped bass.
