Rodrigo y Gabriela Return to Mexico City in Triump

Fascinanting story. Fascinating music.

Their covers of Santana and Take 5 enthralled passers-by and led to invitations to perform in pubs and eventually notice from the Irish musician Damien Rice, who helped get them a manager and a record deal. They began fiddling with their own riffs, with Mr. Sánchez handling melody and Ms. Quintero taking on percussion and rhythm, often trying to copy the flamenco music she always loved but never learned to play classically.
