Joanna MacGregor and Adrian Brendel are joined by violinist Thomas Gould, accordionist Martynas Levickis and percussionist Adriano Adewale for a programme of classic tango and its myriad musical tributaries. Astor Piazzolla revolutionised the tango in the 20th century and he is placed here beside Argentines Osvaldo Golijov, Alberto Ginastera and the ever-playful Mauricio Kagel. Erik Satie and Stravinsky dip their toes in, alongside brilliant arrangements by Marcelo Nisinman, a student of Piazzolla, all linked with improvisations by the band. Expect all the sultry tension and colourful exchanges of a night in Buenos Aires…

Eduardo Martín’s 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 favored instrument to mirror the melodic and rhythmic facets of the Americas’ cultural diversity. Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas took lessons with Eduardo in Cuba, and their friendship and musical empathies have since grown to form a unique project. This recital offers an introduction to of some of Martin’s 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 slap bass.
