Coming Soon to the Moore!
I've never heard of these guys, but I'm told that they're Mexicans who live in Dublin. Their bio does a really poor job of describing their music (most bios are like that), but from what I understand they're a combination of flamenco and butt rock. Wow, that sounds like a fairly horrible collision. Don't get me wrong, both of those genres are completely viable and enjoyable, but when you mix the two, don't expect the results to be pretty. It's like this old Tadd Dameron tune called "Casbah" that tried to merge bebop and opera. Please don't call it "bebopera." Yeah, it's every bit as bad as you'd think. I hope that Rodrigo and Gabriela achieve better results.
