Guitar Heroes

The astonishing Rodrigo y Gabriela have quite an interesting history. The two guitarists started out in a heavy metal band in Mexico City. They moved to Dublin where they earned a living busking on the street. Eventually they learned flamenco guitar, were taken on tour with Damien Rice, and the rest, as they say, is history. The duo has released three cds, the third of which hit the number one spot on the Irish charts in 2006. They play everything from traditional flamenco to their interpretations of rock tunes. All in their own fiery brand of blistering guitar work.
