Artist of the Week (Speaking of Mexican...): Rodrigo Y Gabriela

OK so in the previous post I actually said "Texican" but who's paying attention? From Mexico by way of Ireland, here is the fantastic, dynamic duo of Rodrigo y Gabriela, the greatest Hispanic thing to happen to rock since the Gypsy Kings had a hit with "Bamboleo" (sorry Los Lonely Boys but it's true).

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriba!


How much do I like them? Here's a second clip:

And they do a mean Stairway to Heaven too.

WOW! Glad I stumbled onto this through Google alerts for my FAVORITE band... Los Lonely Boys.
You are right - Rodrigo y Gabriela are unbelievably talented and I am going to get their CD pronto! However, I would like to add that I wouldn't actually compare them to LLB. I don't think they share the same genre of music, perhaps the same heritage, but their music is very different. They are both distinctly amazing and talented in their own styles.
