The Mexican guitar duo on Tour!
Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela are back on the road again! They first came to international attention when they traveled to Dublin in 2002 when Damien Rice noticed them busking and asked them to accompany him on tour. Now the dynamic Latin duo have gone from busking talent to international musical superstars - experience one of their gigs to hear just why!
The powerhouse of the duo comes from Gabriela's exquisitely fast strumming, described by many reviewers as hummingbird-like and provides the main bass sound for their music; on the other hand, Rodrigo uses these strong notes to cascade with higher chord combos and sis content to have her take the main applause. He has his own charm and flair however, such as playing slide with a Heineken bottle and managing to evoke Led Zeppelin at the same time! Their trademark rapid guitar play has become their trademark and has garnered a huge following worldwide, and even spawned a special DVD for their 11:11 concert in Japan.
