Durrant Y Ledesma


The album of guitar and harp music is a stunning collection of originals by both musicians; full of Paraguayan passion and rhythms teamed with European melodies. Richard met Ismael in London when he was performing at the Bolivar Hall, for the Ambassador of Paraguay. Their first concert tour together came some months later in October 2016. This was a whistle-stop, six date UK adventure begun just one day after they played together for the very first time. The audience reaction was incredible and the album became a necessity. Ismael Ledesma is a cultural ambassador for Paraguay although he has lived in France for thirty years. Like Richard he has been playing his instrument since a very young age. After finishing school he was invited to France by his uncle Kike Lucena. He decided to stay and joined the circle of Latin American musicians in Paris whilst studying at the International Music Conservatoire of Paris. He is now a successful soloist who has performed across the world. English guitarist and composer Richard Durrant is no stranger to South America. During his first visit to Paraguay he was honoured as an "Esteemed Visitor" to the capitol city Asuncion. He has appeared twice as soloist with the national orchestra, has released a successful trilogy of Paraguayan albums and published a book of stories and music "The Number 26 Bus to Paraguay" cataloguing his adventures and introducing guitarists to the new music he has uncovered over recent years. Richard and Ismael performed in Asuncion together in April to mark Ismael's 35th Anniversary tour. They'll be undertaking a short UK tour in June featuring music from the album.
