Rodrigo y Gabriela is the second studio album by Mexican musical duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. It was first released in Ireland on February 17, 2006, where it debuted at on the Irish Albums Chart. The album included covers of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" and Metallica's "Orion", two artists who the duo say influenced their music. Their album was subsequently certified platinum in Ireland. The Japanese version of the album has an extra track, named "Señorita Xxx".
Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero are two fast-fingered Mexicans with a unique sound created on acoustic guitars. Their music is difficult to define, straddling both world and rock and often imbued with timeless Hispano – classical influences. The fire in their music comes from their life-long passion for metal music. In spring 2006, Rodrigo y Gabriela, beat both the Arctic Monkeys AND Johnny Cash to number one in the Irish charts.
All of the sitar and oud solos from the album are also included, arranged for guitar. Includes such tunes as Tamacun and Satori. A perfect gift for all guitar players and enthusiasts. Includes unlimited streaming of Rodrigo y Gabriela via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

While Rodrigo y Gabriela's self-titled third album is an utter and complete joy to listen to - actually, it's more of a riotous celebration - it's more than difficult to describe exactly what they do. This Mexican guitar duo met while in a heavy metal outfit together and soon found the local scene wanting. Both had roots in flamenco and other folk and rock music; they dropped the electric guitars - and bandmates - to travel light. They headed off to Europe, and ended up busking in Ireland, where their renown spread as instrumentalists who had to be seen to be believed. He was able to help them record a studio album that captured the sheer orgiastic excitement of their live gigs, hence this self-titled puppy that debuted in the Irish charts at number one. Uh-huh. It's true that Ireland's not a big place, but when, when, have you ever heard of an instrumental recording by a Mexican duo hitting the number one spot in such a place?
Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero, the acoustic, instrumental rock duo who record as Rodrigo y Gabriela, are back with their first album in five years. Mettavolution offers six original tracks and one ambitious cover, a 19-minute version of Pink Floyd’s 1971 epic song Echoes. Listening to them play, it’s hard to believe two people playing guitars can make music so powerful. It’s even harder to believe that they’re self-taught. AP Photo/Brian Kersey, File).
