The new collaboration between Li Lu and guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cardenas has been established with the aim of introducing first-rate contemporary  and rarely heard works for cello and guitar to UK audiences.  Their current repertoire is an excellently balanced variety of styles stemming from Spain and France to South America and even Asia. Expect  fearsome, virtuosic, sad, introspective and electrifying.
