The Havana Suite Album Launched

Cuban guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cardenas released his latest album - The Havana Suite, with a live performance on 17th May at London s Soho restaurant/bar/club -Floridita. The album is the result of his collaboration and work with Trio Mestizo and is a homage to Havana and its famous decaying beauty.

This collection of beautiful works by Cuban composer Eduardo Martin, features the combined talents of Ahmed s sublime guitar playing, together with the percussion and musical co-production of Hammadi Rencurrel, and Emma Blanco on violin.

An innovative production, the album exploits the interaction between contemporary Cuban guitar sonorities and well-known Cuban musical genres such as Rumba, Danzon, Cha-cha-cha, Changui, Bolero, and Timba, amongst others
