Rodrigo Y Gabriela: Tamacun

Someone was surprised the other day that an old man of 65 would love music by Pink. You may not realize this but I was a fine arts major in college, loving all forms and styles of music. I grew up in the time of the Beatles who were studied in Music Appreciation for their technical ability at song writing.

Rodrigo y Gabriela (Rodrigo and Gabriela) are a Mexican guitar duo whose music spans a number of genres including nuevo flamenco,rock, and heavy metal. The duo’s discography consists largely of unaccompanied duets on the classical guitar.

The musicians gained a reputation by playing on the streets of DublinIreland and gained a cult following. They regularly dismiss being classified in a particular genre of music, preferring to say they play a fusion of many influences. I own 4-5 of their albums and just purchased their latest.

    • They’ve been around for years. I have at least 4 of their albums. If you’d like to hear more of their music and see them perform get on YouTube and type in Rodrigo and Gabriela and watch until your heart’s content. They are amazing.
