Eduardo Martín & Ahmed Dickinson (Cuba)

Sunday, 16 April 2023, 3.00pm

Eduardo Martin, the Grammy-nominated and multiple lifetime achievement award-winning Cuban guitarist and composer joins forces with fellow award-winning, London-based Cuban musician, Ahmed Dickinson - a guitarist described as a ‘true pioneer’ by Classic FM - to present ‘The Bridge’. Launching an extensive tour of the UK and Ireland, Martin and Dickinson perform the music of their long-awaited album, ‘The Bridge’: a carefully curated compilation of Eduardo’s most alluring works for two guitars, where rock merges with son montunos; old Yoruba chants, feel-good rumbas and funk- boleros, with cinematic pieces sitting alongside Cuban tumbaos with slap bass—perfect sound bites exploring the many facets of the guitar tradition from across the Americas. By incorporating the influences of jazz, flamenco, pop, Afro and traditional Cuban melodic and rhythmic intricacies, the music bridges the gap between generations and continents, past and present, uniting teacher and student.
