The 2023 Miami International GuitART Festival presents virtuoso Cuban guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cardenas in a solo concert, performing a program of Latin American music, including works by Jose Antonio (Ñico) Rojas, Eduardo Martín, Walfrido Dominguez, Antonio Lauro, and Agustin Barrios Mangoré.

For nearly ten years, Dickinson Cardenas enjoyed the great privilege of collaborating with the prolific late Cuban guitarist and composer Jose Antonio (Ñico) Rojas. Ahmed transcribed Rojas’ extensive unpublished works during this period, and subsequent performances and recordings earned two prizes at the Cubadisco Awards 2009, Best Instrumental Soloist & Best Instrumental Album. The same album was nominated for Best Artist & Best Newcomer in Songlines World Music Magazine, and Best Album & Best Single at the Latin American Music Awards UK.
