Rodrigo Y Gabriela

Back in 2004, when Marisa (my sister) and I were visiting our sister (Becky) in Dublin, Ireland we wanted to get some local music. My little sister, Marisa asked Paul (Becky's boyfriend at the time, now husband) what she should get. He suggested that she purchase Rodrigo Y Gabriela live in Dublin and Manchester. We had no idea what that was but Marisa went ahead and purchased the album based on his advice. When we listened to the album we were both blown away. Rodrigo Y Gabriela are a duo from Mexico and now hail in Dublin, Ireland. They play very fast flamenco guitar. They like to cover hard rock and heavy metal arists like Led Zepplin and Metalica in addition to playing their own compositions. They are currently on a U.S. tour and will be on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic show tommorow and on Friday they will be on the The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson on CBS.
