RODRIGO Y GABRIELAIn Between Thoughts... A New World
Grammy Award winning duo Rodrigo y Gabriela grew up on an eclectic mix of classic rock, heavy
metal and flamenco, a rare alchemy of influences that still informs their work today. Not long after
the dissolution of their first band, the two musicians set off with their acoustic guitars and ended up
in Ireland, where they soon ran out of money and began busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street — a
turn of events that led to their crossing paths with Irish singer/songwriter Damien Rice, who then
asked them to open for him at an early headline show.
As they developed their distinct breed of guitar music, Rodrigo y Gabriela quickly gained recognition for their extraordinary live show and made their full-length debut with 2002’s re-Foc.
Among their many successes: performing at The White House for the President and First Lady of Mexico at a 2010 event hosted by Barack Obama; headlining the Jazz World stage at Glastonbury; selling out major venues like the Hollywood Bowl, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, London’s Royal Albert Hall, Radio City Music Hall. In 2023 they will release their most ambitious project yet, the Advaita Vedanta inspired In Between Thoughts...A New World, which features their signature dual guitar attack augmented by a full orchestra, and a corresponding world tour.
We are so excited to welcome GRAMMY Award winning duo Rodrigo y Gabriel to Smart Financial Centre on May 18th for the In Between Thoughts... A New World Tour with special guests Krooked Kings!
