Gem of the Week: Guitar Duo Rodrigo y Gabriela

15 Oct


My gem this week goes to the stellar mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela and their latest album 9 Dead Alive.

According to their official site, this is their fourth studio album. They are also currently on tour and do have a Detroit show scheduled for October 25th at The Fillmore.

I came across their music recently through a live public television special and I thought they were truly awesome to watch.

I heard mostly a flamenco style influence which is one of my favorite styles. I think Rodrigo y Gabriela are impressive and skilled in the art of classical guitar playing.

I downloaded the album  9 Dead Alive and it has been my current favorite this week. I especially love the song “Misty Moses” and I can’t stop listening to that one over and over.

I also think its cool that they are exposing newer generations to flamenco and rumba styles.

I am looking forward to exploring more of their albums and I’m hoping to go to their upcoming show here in Detroit.
