The boss of a record store Sanity overheard the duo's performance and was impressed enough to order 13,000 copies of the album. The record was picked up by a company called MRA and reached No. 22 on the Melbourne charts.
"We want to make it a national hit, so we are going to hit the road and play every major city over the next few months." Dickson says.
"At the same time, negotiations are happening for the album to be released in the United States and New Zealand. I expect the record to be out there by mid-year."
Fans tend to be intrigued by Dicksons fusion of flamenco with Indian rhythms. To Dickson, it's a natural root. "Flamenco was originally started in India by the gypsies. The music changed as they took it to Arabia and then to Europe."
"Flamenco is an ever-evolution music," Dickson says. "But to me, this is Australian music."
"It's music made in Australia by musicians in Australia."
"It incorporates the different sounds of countries where Australia has come from. It's world musi because Australia is made up of the world."
Dickson Martinez support Tommy Emmanuel at the Continental cafe in Melbourne on Tuesday and Wednesday.
