9 Dead Alive, from 2014, the latest album by Rodrigo Sánchez e Gabriela Quintero is a concentrate of elegance and taste in 9 tracks, which contain the essence of the warmth and spontaneity with which the two artists approach their instrument and play together. Their music unfolds through an intuitive interplay of sounds that are intimate, yet spectacular and full of melodic energy and rhythmic invention.
From humble beginnings in Mexico, to life as a busker in Dublin, Rodrigo y Gabriela have taken the first steps on an artistic and musical journey that has taken them from Metallica covers, revised according to the canons of bossa nova, to classical music. In just a few years, they have captivated the whole of Europe and beyond with their extraordinary technique. Virtuosos of their instrument, they are able to recreate the sounds of a large orchestra of at least 40 elements starting with just two simple acoustic guitars, ranging from folk to rock, up to flamenco and Latin rhythms.
Rodrigo y Gabriela have sold more than 1.5 million copies of their albums and have toured the world several times with great success. Last December they recorded Continuum, one of the greatest classics by historic bassist Jaco Pastorius, from the '76 album of the same name. The track is the soundtrack to Jaco, the documentary - signed by Robert TrujilloMetallica bassist and John Pastorius IVthe eldest son of Jaco - who recounts the life and extraordinary career of Pastorius.
