Ahmed Dickinson Cardenas is one of the finest performers of the Cuban Classical Guitar School. He is a sophisticated virtuoso on his instrument and an ambassador of Cuban culture. Born in Havana, Dickinson Cardenas graduated from the Superior Institute of Art (ISA Havana) in Guitar.
Ahmed Dickinson returns to Sage Gateshead with a performance packed with some of his favourite guitar works, displaying the diversity of compositional styles and tendencies found in Cuban composers from diverse generations including Leo Brouwer, “Latin Grammy” winner Yalil Guerra, Eduardo Martín, Luis Manuel Molina and Jose Antonio Rojas.
A concoction of lively, fresh repertoire combining traditional Cuban and Latin American genres with classical styles and a hint of Jazz.
“You are left with the sensation of being touched to the core by exquisitely played pieces.” SONGLINES
