music: rodrigo y gabriela


Who claims Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Astor Piazzolla and Dimebag Darrell all as influences?! Well, Rodrigo y Gabriela do. Personally, I hear some Django Reinhardt too–but that's just me. These two are amazing guitar players! Rodrigo's got some fast fingers but Gabriela's incredible percussive capability while still strumming notes cannot be understated. Check 'em out on this NPR Tiny Desk Concert clip. Spellbinding!

Note to those who watch the video, crank it up in order to Gabriela's work better. She wasn't mic'ed as loud as Rodrigo in this recording.
