Product Reviews

Instrumental, Upbeat and Acoustic

The team of Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero under the guise of Rodrigo Y Gabriela was a breath of fresh air for me personally. I was first made aware of the band after being blown away by an acoustic performance of Metallica's epic 'Orion', done entirely on two guitars on a TV show.

The thing that sets these guys apart from other instrumental acoustic music that I've heard, is that it has some real gusto and passion. Rodrigo and Gabriela met in Mexico city after being in a metal band, but splintered off to do their own thing outside of the usual 'metal' remit with a plethora of other more leftfield influences. Thus, the way which the guitars are played occasionally has a fast and intensely rhythmic feel, much like metal. But, rest assured - this is entirely acoustic, but stands out greatly due to it's unusual style and feel (who knows, the covers of Metallica and Led Zep might even get you investigating other styles of music if you hadn't come across them previously!).

Very different, upbeat and great to listen to - I can't recommend this album highly enough.
