Dunne & Hernandez Trio
Ariel Hernandez – guitar,voice
Dermot Dunne – accordion
Lucas Gonzalez - guitar, percussion
There's a rare chemistry between Ariel Hernandez and Dermot Dunne, apparent from the moment they first shared a stage in 2004. Many nights later, the musical and personal rapport is getting stronger, and this is one creative partnership set to endure.
Hernandez supplies quiet authenticity, an unadorned voice and mastery of Latin guitar idioms, learned from the old players in his native Buenos Aires. Dunne, an accordionist of extravagant talent borne of classical rigour, and who enthusiastically embraces music in all its hues, elicits great drama from the accordion and negotiates the rhythmic twists and turns of this music as if he were born to it. A match made in heaven.
Fellow Argentine, Lucas Gonzalez adds subtle percussion and classic Latin guitar virtuosity to an already enduring mix.
