The Story
Mexico's Rodrigo and Gabriela have reinvented the rules for acoustic guitar. They have reshaped its landscape using lightning speed, dynamic range and irresistible rhythmic invention. Constantly refining and redefining their craft, 2006 sees them rising to meet the challenge of taking their craft to a wider audience and greater artistic acclaim. With the release of "Rodrigo Y Gabriela" they are satisfied that they have managed to finally capture the raw excitement and energy of their live shows. Showing them as leaders in their field, gleefully blending and blurring musical genres in pursuit to their artistic vision - a direct connection with the hearts and minds of the audience. Features excellent, creative covers of Metallica's "Orion" and Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven". Also contains limited edition bonus DVD with interviews, live performance, tutorial and gallery.
