I didn't know anything about Rodrigo y Gabriela this morning. Now I do. I love that about music, art, life!!
They are a Mexican guitar duo, who combine Rock, Flamenco, Jazz, Metal and Folk and have been doing their thing for a decade now. They used to earn a crust playing in hotels, and being metal fans, they had a repertoire that included Slayer, Megadeth, Testament. But no one would have guessed that. Not the way they play them.
They played in thrash metal bands together in Mexico, and spent the past 10 years mostly in Dublin (a great city for sure).
So here are Rodrigo y Gabriela, made up of Rodrigo Sanchez (lead guitar) and Gabriela Quintero (rhythm guitar) playing Stairway to Heaven, and there's nothing cliché about it.
