Rodrigo y Gabriela is a phenomenal Mexican guitar duo like nothing you are likely to see anywhere else. Legend has it that after each concert, Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero have to submerge their hands in ice-cold watch to stop them from catching on fire. They’ve sold over a million albums, played the soundtracks of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and performed at a number of prestigious festivals and concert venues all over the world. With just two acoustic guitars, the energetic pair appeal to audiences thirsty to witness their awe-inspiring jaw-droppingly good instrumental style which must make all other guitars burn with jealous rage. Gabriela will bowl you over with her ferocious speed, flamenco-tinged fingerstyle technique and rhythmic use of her instrument. With his delightful solos and inventive melodic skill, Rodrigo on the other hand is sure to win over your heart. But at the end of the day, it makes no sense to try and unravel their music: It’s likely you need to be brought up with Latin-American rhythms, flamenco and wild dance Mexican styles to truly understand it. Rodrigo y Gabriela also rose to fame thanks to their original versions of tracks by Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Hendrix, Rage Against the Machine and Radiohead. The former lovers are now just friends and will be coming to Colours with their latest album 9 Dead Alive. Only one thing links their fiery and lyrical homage to historical personalities: that the history of humankind will never ever forget them.
