Dedicated heavy metal fans from Mexico City, Rodrigo y Gabriela have roots in flamenco and folk-rock. They started in Europe, where their renown as master instrumentalists quickly spread and earned them touring slots with everyone from David Gray to the Buena Vista Social Club. Their self-titled third album debuted at #1 in Ireland, despite being an instrumental recording by a Mexican duo. Now the buzz on these frenetic and dynamic musicians has spread to the States. Their concurrently ancient and futuristic sound, drenched in the vulgarity of street life, incorporates rock ‘n’ roll dynamics with metal chops, flamenco and tango. Experience the sound of passion through the instrumental prowess of Rodrigo y Gabriela.
Rodrigo y Gabriela are MTV's "Buzzworthy" Artist of the Week beginning August 20! They're featured all over the place, in promos for new shows and advertisements for the likes of My Sweet 16 and The Hills. Check out their artist feature page here.
