One Band, Two Guitars, Countless Amounts of Amazing

Eyes saucer-wide, ears tingling with incredulous joy, I watched the finale of Rodrigo y Gabriela‘s recent Pittsburgh performance. Their fingers were racing across the frets of their guitars, moving so fast that I was sure their instruments would rip into flame from the sheer friction of their flying fingers. The show ended, guitars in one piece, but that didn’t mean Rodrigo y Gabriela’s show was anything short of incendiary.

If you’ve got no idea who Rodrigo y Gabriela are, it’s time to change that. You can start by watching their video of “Diablo Rojo” above. Go ahead, start streaming now. Take a minute. Listen. See what I mean? Incredible, right? How one song can meld together such a seductive combination of chords, rhythm, technique, and passion is purely baffling. And, “Diablo Rojo” isn’t the only song by this Mexican duo that will make you comatose with awe – they all will.

What do you think of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s music? Had you heard of them before?

    I adore R&G — their cover of “Stairway to Heaven” is mindboggling.

    Wow! Rodrigo y Gabriela! I bought my dad their cd last summer after he talked about them non-stop.
    That is so cool, and now I love modcloth even more. 😀

    I saw them when they played the Enmore Theatre in Sydney a few years back and it was amazing! They played Wish you Were Here with a beer bottle slide and the crowd sang along and it was magical.

    I first heard them over a year ago and I absolutely adore them 🙂 I’m so glad they are becoming more popular and can’t wait until I can see them live!
