Rodrigo y Gabriela finished their ten-city U.S. 9 DEAD ALIVE Tour on May 11 at the Paramount Theater to a packed house of energetic adoring fans. This instrumental duo specializes in playing fast, rhythmic acoustic guitars. Both artists have a heavy-metal background and were in a band called Tierra Acida (Acid Land) in the early ’90s. Frustrated with the Mexican music scene, they moved to Europe and developed a following.
The Paramount show had deep, resonating, crisp sounds of electric acoustic heaven. Rodrigo y Gabriela creates tandem magic with the marriage of two souls. Gabriela’s flamenco style, with her flying fingers tapping and knuckling the guitar, create the bass line intertwined with Rodigos’
unmatched clarity of a clean, acoustic guitar sound. The mixture creates musical candy for the soul. The audience at many times were on
their feet, as if they were attending an arena rock show. The set took the crowd for a ride from the beautiful melodies to the high-energy, hard-driving dual guitars melding into one sound.
Ever sit in a concert and close your eyes, just to have an unhindered absorption of the musical magic? I did.
