Rodrigo and Gabriela originally started together in a thrash metal band (don’t judge them on this yet!) in Mexico, but their limited exposure forced them to pursue other avenues to get noticed. They moved to Dublin, after hearing it was a good place for new artists to get noticed. Contrary to their beginnings, they play a very toe-tappingly-good acoustic flamenco style – it’s incredibly catchy. Using only their guitars for both music and rhythm (just the ol’ tapping) they have a very different and welcomed style.
