Episode #11 of the Live Music Podcast brings another unique style of music somewhat like the last episode. In this episode I am featuring a band called Rodrigo y Gabriela made up of Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero. This duo's musical style is something of a combination of mariachi and heavy metal, which might make them the only band on the planet to do so. All of their songs are strictly acoustic and instrumental, played on a pair of classical guitars. Amazingly they are able to play in such a way that you would swear that there is someone else playing percussion instruments with them. Regardless of how you describe their style I find Rodrigo y Gabriela's music very energetic and uplifting, the musical equivalent to a box of Red Bull.
