Product Overview

On their 2006 self-titled album, Rodrigo y Gabriela offer up a fierce set of acoustic instrumentals that garnered the Mexican guitar duo international attention. Technically accomplished, playful, and emotive, these tracks work in the flamenco and folk vernaculars while reverberating with rock energy, as revealed on the fleet-fingered "Tamacun" and the highly percussive "Diablo Rojo." However, the real showstoppers on Rodrigo Y Gabrielaare the pair's excellent covers of Metallica's "Orion" and Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," which both honor the hard-rock originals, and resonate with impressive added flourishes.

Artist Overview
Guitarists Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero met in Mexico City, where they played together in the metal band Tierra Acida. The two decided to form a duo specializing in fast, rhythmic music played on classical guitars that drew from Latin, folk, Flamenco, and rock styles. A move to Dublin, Ireland improved the duo's lot. Through regular local performances, touring, and the release of several albums, Rodrigo y Gabriela gained a devoted following. Their 2006 self-titled effort entered the Irish Album Charts at #1.
Artist Bio
Rodrigo (Sanchez) and Gabriela (Quintero) are two fast-fingered, Dublin-based, Mexicans with a unique sound created on acoustic guitars. Their music is difficult to define, straddling both world and rock, and often imbued with timeless Hispano--classical influences. The fire in it comes from their life-long passion for metal music.
