GREAT 2006 2nd studio release by talented Mexican acoustic guitar duo Rodrigo Sánchez (born 1974) and Gabriela Quintero (born 1973) who grew up in middle-class families in Mexico City. Their parents listened to flamenco, jazz, and rock music, but they were both exposed to heavy metal, like Metallica, which proved influential to Rodrigo and Gabriela.
This release has 2 discs - the studio music CD and a Bonus video dics which includes a fun 15 minute plus 'Story' of how they evolved into their current styles, several interesting live cuts, and a good tutorial which explains how (among other things) they integrate so much percussion into their dual acoustic guitar style.

This duo use, extensively, the guitar as a percussion instrument, which gives their music a lot of dynamics. My only suggestion is once in while they should punctuate the CD with a soft piece to give the collection variety. Otherwise, this is a totally enjoyable CD for guitar music lovers.

Wow! There is no way to define this duo, but I'll give it a shot: 2 acoustic guitarists who use flamenco, latin, jazz, rock, metal, pop, and you name it, to make some of the best head-bang-and-hum-along music I have heard in a long time. The Metallica and Led Zepplin covers are amazing! If you love music, you will adore this album!
