RODRIGO Y GABRIELA Unmistakably virtuoso

Hot on the heals of their announcement as part of a bumper WOMADelaide line up today comes news that celebrated Mexican instrumental virtuosos Rodrigo y Gabriela will also play a run of national theatre shows next year, including a stopover at the Astor Theatre, Mount Lawley on Tuesday, March 13.

One of the most critically acclaimed acoustic instrumental bands in the world, Rodrigo y Gabriela have sold in excess of 1.5 million albums globally, and have packed out iconic venues around the world with their unique showmanship. Unmistakably Spanish in sound, the former buskers (and former couple) also showcase influences as diverse as metal to rock to world music.

Known for their dynamic live performances, and with roots busking in Dublin before extensive touring and a great word of mouth buzz carried them forward, their last studio album was 2014’s 9 Dead Alive. In January of this year, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their self-titled breakthrough release, Rodrigo y Gabriela reissued a newly remastered version of that album, together with a never-before-released 2006 live record.

Rodrigo y Gabriela play the Astor Theatre, Mount Lawley on Tuesday, March 13. Tickets on sale 9am Monday, October 16.
