Rodrigo y Gabriela Perform “Orion”

See the power and heartfelt performance live on KEXP.

November 10, 2016

KEXP presents Rodrigo y Gabriela performing “Orion” live at the Triple Door. Recorded May 11, 2014.

For over 12 years now (not to mention the many years of hard work they spent playing on the streets of Mexico City and Dublin to perfect their sound), guitar-wielders Rodrigo y Gabriela have been consistently cranking out classical improvisations, maintaining a steady sound while redefining what one can actually do with a guitar. Showing up at Seattle’s Triple Door to play some songs from their album 9 Dead Alive for an exclusive session for KEXP’s VIP Club, the duo blew the enthusiastic crowd off their feet. You can hear how everyone in the venue knows exactly when to clap, keeping the impressively technical tempo moving alon., See how powerful heartfelt performances can be for both the artists and their audience.
