Rodrigo Y Gabriela at Brown Theatre

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on March 8, 2010

Rodrigo Y Gabriela played a splendid concert the Brown Theatre, Sunday evening to over 1300 appreciative  fans.

Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero hail from Mexico City but have lived in Ireland for the past ten years.

Their lighting fast Latin-infused instrumental guitar music is difficult to label. A mix of Latin, pop, rock, jazz, and heavy metal all done with acoustic guitars.

The pair began in a Mexican Thrash band “Tierra Acid” until finding their unique sound in the streets and bars of Ireland.

Since this was their first visit to Louisville , they seemed surprised to see a full house of knowledgeable fans very  familiar of their music. Some of which came from Indianapolis to see the show.

They played songs from 2006 Rodrigo and Gabriela, an album that sold over 600,000 copies, worldwide and from their newest release 11:11.
