For the uninitiated, this Mexican duo have carved out a niche for themselves by playing what many describe (inaccurately in my opinion) as 'Mariachi Metal'. This demeans what they have actually done though, which is bring a breath of fresh air and an immediacy to acoustic guitar music which I have never experienced before.
This album, recorded live in Tokyo, is possibly the best expression of their phenomenal talent yet released (although I really would like a new studio album - please?). Gabriela manages to make her guitar sound like an entire rhythm section for Rodrigo's ultra-fast melody lines: her guitar booms like bass a drum, rattles like a snare and seems to become both guitar and bass at the same time, all of which combine to deliver high-octane, complex rhythms which at times one simply cannot believe is coming from only one instrument. The accompanying DVD (worth the asking price alone!) shows off her style best - her hand is oftentimes a blur across the strings. I find myself wishing they'd filmed it with one of those hummingbird cameras they use for nature documentaries, just so I could slow it down and make sense of what she's doing (as a guitarist of fifteen years, this girl showed me how talentless I really am!). If this was a Gabriela solo show, I'd still buy it.
But it's not a solo performance, and Rodrigo is every bit as talented (but in a completely different style) as Gabriela.Read more ›
Only disappointment for me was the DVD does not cover the entire concert and `Stairway' and other you want to see are not there. Still worth it anyway now it catch them live.
