Rodrigo y Gabriela Tickets
Rodrigo y Gabriela are a Mexican musical duo who specialize in playing fast,
rhythmic acoustic guitars. They began performing together in 2000.
Rodrigo y Gabriela are from Mexico City, Mexico and met there in a thrash metal band called Tierra Acida. Growing frustrated with the limited scope of the domestic music scene, they pulled up roots and moved to Europe, where they have met considerable acclaim. They took up residence in Dublin, Ireland, after hearing it was particularly welcoming to travelling musicians. While busking on the streets, they were discovered by Damien Rice.
