Don’t take our word for it… this is what other reviewers have said
You are left with the sensation of being touched to the core by exquisitely played pieces” SONGLINES
Described as “a true pioneer” (Classic FM Magazine), award winning London-based Cuban guitarist, Ahmed Dickinson Cardenas, is one of the finest performers of the Cuban classical guitar school. In Spring 2016, he will release his sixth album featuring Grammy nominee and fellow Cuban guitarist – Eduardo Martin – which they will subsequently tour across the UK and Europe.
“Within my musical congregation I regard Eduardo as the Piazzolla of Cuban Guitar. Only individuals with an impressive level of sensibility can convey such degrees of happiness, pleasure and melancholic love to life and to a nation…. I am happy to say that Eduardo only creates masterpieces” Oscar Ghiglia, WORLD RADIO GENEVA, SWITZERLAND.
