Rodrigo y Gabriela
They became well known playing in the hotels and bars of Dublin, Ireland. One reviewer said that "...Rodrigo y Gabriela's secret is maybe quite simple. They are resourceful musicians, and are open-hearted, happy entertainers. That, very often, is what people want." Both are vegans and support animal rights. They play a mixture of many influences and styles.
They met in Mexico City while playing in a thrash metal band and later moved to Dublin. Their album, Rodrigo y Gabriela, entered the Irish Albums Chart at Number One.
