A Song a Day – Day 111

This morning I woke up with Santana’s Smooth in my head, but I’ve already done that one, so something different for today.

This duo were a random discovery, made not that long ago. I had my usual background music on while working, and one of their tunes came on. I’ve never been able to re-find what it was they were playing, but it made me cry. Their story is a good one – they’re a pair of Mexicans who met in Mexico City while playing in a thrash metal band! Needless to say, their music is pretty diverse. Take a look at their page on Wikipedia to find out more.

They are Rodrigo y Gabriela and this tune is called Tamacun.

  1. ooo, great choice. These two are immensely talented. They’ve done some interesting covers, but their original compositions spark up so much awesomeness. They even had a spot supporting Muse which culminated in playing Wembley IIRC. As a guitarist myself, I can totally respect the music here. This is some serious guitar playing. If you like this I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO recommend ‘Friday Night In San Francisco’ It’s an guitar album with music just like this played in a trio format. The first time I heard it, it completely blew my mind. Tommy Emmanuel might also be worth a check out.

    Buster Voodoo is a top notch R&G track also. Superb choice, one of your best yet.
